One of the leading obstacles in obtaining assistive technology is finding the money to pay for it. There are a wide variety of public and private entities that can assist with the purchase of equipment, but because the field of assistive technology is always changing, policies and procedures for its funding are constantly changing. It is difficult, not only to identify the appropriate resources but also to find the most direct route to successful funding for these devices.

FAAST was developed to make assistive technology and related services more easily accessible to all Floridians with disabilities.

This book is designed to be a guide for anyone who needs financial assistance to purchase assistive technology as an aid to independent functioning and improved quality of life. It is intended to be simple to use for identifying possible sources of funding and providing strategies to secure it. Although the information contained in the guide is the most current information available through the latest edition, it is subject to change.
