The purpose of West Virginia Assistive Technology System (WVATS) is to provide services and resources to help West Virginia residents of all ages and abilities make informed decisions about assistive technology. WVATS serves not only individuals with disabilities, but also their circle of support. This includes family members, employers, employment service providers, educators, health care providers, social service providers, and others seeking AT expertise in all areas of life, but especially in education, employment, and community living.

What is Assistive Technology (AT)?

Assistive technology is any product or service that makes tasks easier or possible for individuals with disabilities or limitations. There are many tools available to help people live, learn, work, and play independently. These tools can be as simple as magnifiers and alternative keyboards or as complex as augmentative communication devices and switch access.

Adaptive Tools and Agriculture Demo Day

Farming & gardening can be hard on your body, but with the right tools you can keep doing what you love. WVATS is hosting an event to showcase adaptive tools. Vendors will be displaying tools to help with arthritis, back pain, and mobility.
