Assistive Technology

At L.I.F.E. all our therapists provide assistive technology (AT) 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, Therapeutic Positioning Program and other AT needs in the classrooms.
