November is Assistive Technology Awareness month in Pennsylvania
By proclamation from the Governor's office, November has been declared Assistive Technology Awareness month in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Assistive technology devices are not luxury items, but necessities for people with disabilities and older citizens. An assistive technology device is any item, piece of equipment or product system, whether acquired commercially, modified or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities or older citizens. These tools empower people to control their lives and their futures.
