UCP Assistive Technology Services Offer Individuals with Disabilities Equipment Evaluations and Trials

The goal of UCP Central PA’s Assistive Technology Services is to increase the independence and functional ability of people with disabilities through the use of assistive technology (AT) at work, school, home, or in the community.


Provided AT Services

Evaluations

Evaluations to be conducted at the individual’s home, work site, school, or other agreed upon setting. Each evaluation is completed by a certified Assistive Technology Specialist, an Occupational Therapist, and/or a Speech Therapist, as needed. The following areas may be addressed during an evaluation:

  • home adaptations
  • worksite adaptations
  • augmentative and alternative communication systems
  • computer access
  • daily living aids
  • other adaptive equipment for work and independent living

Trials with equipment

Actual trials with equipment that are completed before specific recommendations are made. Input from the individual (and, where appropriate, a family member or caregiver) is considered in order to help ensure a successful match between the user and the recommended equipment.

Follow-up services

Follow up services, including equipment set up and training, are tailored to the individual’s needs and learning style. The training is conducted by an Assistive Technology Specialist and may occur in the user’s home, school, or work setting.

Funding

Assistive technology evaluations and follow-up services may be funded through the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, MH/IDD, or through private pay.

Whether you’ve got a need for assistive technology… have equipment to donate… or just want to learn more, UCP’s AT Specialist can help.
