Assistive Technology (AT) Evaluation

This service involves a comprehensive and individualized evaluation by a team of competent, licensed professionals with both clinical and technical expertise in assistive technology. The interdisciplinary team evaluates and assesses various components and devices simultaneously. The team consults and works together to determine and interface the most appropriate assistive technology device(s) that are consistent with a client’s abilities and meet specific goals.

The Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Department acts as a primary liaison with insurances and other funding resources to purchase the recommended assistive technologies after funding is identified.  The Assistive Technology Loan Fund Authority is a low interest loan program that assists Virginians with disabilities to get the assistive technology they need.

AT Delivery and Fitting Services

The interdisciplinary team which provided the evaluation oversees the fitting, adjustments, modifications and delivery of assistive devices. This team evaluates, assesses and educates clients in the appropriate operation, functional use and maintenance of purchased devices.
