Projects

The Institute on Disability is the lead agency for New Hampshire’s statewide Assistive Technology Act Program: Assistive Technology in New Hampshire, or ATinNH. The program has two major activity areas: Training, Education and Outreach: AT Trainings, Classes, and Workshops and AT Policy  Assistive Technology Services: Equipment Demonstrations, Loans and Refurbishing/Reuse
The goal of the "I CreATe for Paralysis Project" is to develop a self-sustaining open ended loan program of assistive technology solutions that will be provided to over 140 individuals including service providers, caregivers, family members, and consumers who are affected by paralysis in rural areas. Through the "I CreATe for Paralysis Project" individuals who experience paralysis in rural areas and their families will obtain needed assistive technologies using a self-sustaining empowerment approach that will not only fabricate and rapidly deploy needed solutions but will also equip service providers, family members, and individuals with the know-how, tools and materials to create assistive technology solutions to maximize independence and autonomy at home and in the community. These workshops are brought to you through a grant from the High Impact Innovative Technology Assistance Grant Program through the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.
