Other AT Services
Information and Assistance
ATK staff is available to answer questions for persons with disabilities, family members, employers, service providers, educators and others. ATK provides this service at no cost through use of a toll-free number, e-mail, mail or person-to-person meetings. Typical questions involve identifying AT device options, providing strategies for working with agencies, or discussing funding avenues. ATK responds to individual AT requests through research, using existing products, devices or services, and by linking individuals to outside resources.

Individuals: ATK provides a variety of training opportunities for individuals and groups. ATK provides training for individuals with disabilities in the use of assistive technology hardware or software. If an individual is eligible for a public funding source, such as Kansas Rehabilitation Services or Kansas Medicaid, ATK staff will ask for permission to bill for their services.
Organization/Agency: A wide range of training is available to groups. Examples of topics include: learning about specific equipment related to a specific AT category or need such as vision, memory, communication, learning disabilities; work site and education accommodations; funding/policy issues; AT resources; strategies for implementation; and special requests.
