What We Do
ATK strives to improve access to and acquisition of assistive technology (AT) for individuals with disabilities and health conditions of all ages. A statewide Advisory Council provides consumer direction and input from consumers from all regions of the state. State agency and disability organization representatives also serve on the Advisory Council and help guide the program. ATK provides four core services: device demonstration, short-term equipment loan, AT reuse, and assistance in determining funding eligibility for both new and used technologies. The program also works with K-Loan to offer low interest financial loans for the purchase of AT. Through these efforts ATK works to make AT more available and accessible to individuals with disabilities and their families.
AT includes devices and services that help people hear, see, live, learn and work better. A tremendous variety of assistive technology is available today. ATK is a way to connect Kansans to AT. For more information please call 800 KAN DO IT (800-526-3648).
