The Promise of Assistive Technology: An Interactive Guide to Selected Products and Funding Sources

For people with disabilities, assistive products and technologies hold promise for supporting entry or return to the workforce. But what products exist? And what funding sources and accommodations are available to help people acquire the appropriate products and use them in the workplace? Based on a report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, this guide provides a broad overview of selected products and technologies in four categories—(1) wheeled and seated mobility devices; (2) upper extremity prostheses; (3) selected hearing technologies; (4) and communication and speech technologies—as well as available funding options.
