Assistive Technology

At LIFE all our therapists provide assistive technology services such as helping a client/family choose the right device, obtain the device, fit the device, use the device, and maintain the device. Additionally, our therapists help support the Flexible Seating Program and Therapeutic Positioning Programs in the classrooms.
