Promoting Other Facts about AT

Here is just the beginning of a list of FACTS we hope to promote in the future. Each and every one is true for some Assistive Technology users.

1) Expensive AT is not necessarily better

2) AT is not just something for people with physical disabilities

3) Many AT users are self-sufficient

4) Many AT users repair and maintain their own AT systems

5) AT should not be selected for an individual. AT users are the most important decision-makers

6) An AT user's personal preference is extremely important

7) AT is not always the best solution for a disability

8) RESNA certification does not mean a professional knows all types of AT
