Assistive Technology (AT) assists persons with disabilities to live and work as independently as possible. Simply stated, AT is any adaptive aid used by a person with a disability to function independently. Some common examples are wheelchairs, ramps, and computer voice recognition software. RIL employs a full time AT coordinator to assist you in accessing this services. Many of RIL consumers receive their AT through their insurance company or Medi-cal or Medicare. It is referred to as Durable Medical Equipment or DME. RIL’s AT coordinator often provides advocacy services when DME is denied or delayed. We offer also classes on AT 6 times a year.
