Vermont AT Act Program’s Collaboration with the University of Vermont’s Occupational Therapy Doctoral Program

The Vermont Assistive Technology Program (VATP) continued their partnership with the University of Vermont’s inaugural doctorate program by inviting 16 second year occupational therapy students and several of their professors to our Waterbury, Vermont tryout center on October 25, 2023. Students toured the center, interacted with equipment in hands-on demonstrations, and learned about the services the assistive technology program provides for Vermonters.

Arizona Technology Access Program (AzTAP) – Adaptive Gaming Clinic

In the digital age, video gaming has become a growing source of recreation and enjoyment for our society, and it only continues to grow as technology improves and innovative ideas come to light. However, during this time, individuals with complex disabilities may have had limited social and recreational options when compared with their peers, and during the COVID-19 Pandemic to protect their health, these individuals may have had these activities even further curtailed. In the last thirty-plus years since its advent, video gaming has also not been that readily accessible as most mainstream gaming controllers on the market were not specifically accessible or inclusive to individuals with disabilities. However, over the last few years this has begun to change, and more adaptive gaming controls and access options are becoming available.
