Assistive Technology for Kansans

Administered by the University of Kansas, Assistive Technology for Kansans (ATK) is a program that connects people with disabilities and health conditions of all ages with the assistive technology they need to learn, work, play and participate in the community.

As the Northeast ATK Access Site, we help to increase access to and acquisition of assistive technology devices and services to promote independence and productivity in the areas of education, employment, and community living. The assistive technology provided through this service covers a wide range of categories, including vision; hear; speech communication; mobility, seating, and position; learning, cognition and developmental; daily living; environmental adaptations; vehicle modifications and transportation; computers; and recreation, sports, and leisure.

As part of this service, we provide demonstrations of devices with a focus on helping the consumer make an informed decision. We also provide a device loan program, which allows consumer the opportunity to try a specific device or allows for a brief accommodation or a loaner during repair of another device.

In addition to these primary services, RCIL also provides information and assistance, assessment, training, public awareness and collaboration, and technical assistance.
