Graphic representation of the Florida Alliance for Assistive Services & Technology for the blog news

Mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones, and smartwatches are dominating the market. So using them as assistive technology (AT) truly is a no brainer! The market for high end AT has changed tremendously in past years. What used to be a $10k+ device can now be purchased for less than a few hundred dollars. It could even possibly be free through the device’s app store. With this change, AT has become more affordable, accessible, and available than ever before. Check out some of the Apps available for loan through our Device Loan Program!
