 Full Description: 
State and Territory Assistive Technology (AT) Programs focus on improving the provision of AT through comprehensive, statewide programs that are consumer-responsive. The goal of these programs is to increase access to and acquisition of AT through state level activities and state leadership activities. Beyond that minimum requirement, some AT Programs also engage in state improvement initiatives. This means coordinating and collaborating with other public and private entities to put AT into the hands of people with disabilities.

This series of AT Act Data Briefs review how states are progressing in making assistive technology accessible to people with disabilities. There are annual reports for the years 2010 - 2013, as well as a special report done in 2012 on device reutilization, and another done in 2013 on state improvement initiatives to improve access to assistive technology. Each of the annual reports covers how states were doing in the following required areas:

-Device demonstration programs
-Device loan programs
-Device reutilization programs
-State financing
-Consumer satisfaction ratings of state-level activities
-State activities performance measures
-State leadership activities

Development of these reports was supported by the Center for
Assistive Technology Act Data Assistance (CATADA). CATADA is a collaborative project of the Institute for Community Inclusion at the University of Massachusetts Boston and the Association of Assistive Technology
Act Programs.
