Oklahoma ABLE Tech, in partnership with OkAT Foundation, can provide financing options for Oklahomans with disabilities to purchase assistive technology to help them live, work, and learn independently. ABLE Tech's mission is to improve access to, and acquisition of, assistive technology (AT) for individuals with disabilities of all ages.
The Assistive Technology Program may help locate, partially fund, or provide full funding for one of a wide range of devices. These allow those with MS to function more independently in their daily lives, as well as more easily participate in recreational, educational, and vocational activities.
GiveTech was established to identify individuals whose disabilities leave them physically unable to use a computer through normal means (e.g. mouse and/or keyboard) but who remain lucid, who lack the financial ability to purchase the necessary computer input technology to allow them to use a computer, whose lives would be greatly improved by the ability to use a computer.
Association of Blind Citizens will provide funds to cover 50% of the retail price of adaptive devices or software. The ABC board of directors believes that this program will allow blind and visually impaired individuals access to technology products that will have a significant impact on improving employment opportunities, increase the level of independence and enhance their overall quality of life.
The statewide Assistive Technology Act Program proudly located at Oklahoma State University in the Department of Wellness. ABLE Tech is funded through the Administration for Community Living of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and maintains coordination and collaboration efforts with partners throughout the State of Oklahoma. The funding provided helps enhance the opportunities for Oklahomans with disabilities to access and acquire needed assistive technology.
