Due to Covid-19 concerns, ATK’s consumer services and staff activities will be online only.
ATK Director Sara Sack, says, “Assistive Technology for Kansans and all of its services remain open although there will be changes in access from face-to-face to online or paper contact only.”
Kansans are invited to use the statewide toll-free phone 800-526-3648 to contact their regional AT Access Site. Offices are located in Oakley, Salina, Topeka, Garden City, Wichita, and Parsons.
AT Specialists are available to talk with you about your AT needs via email, phone, Skype, Zoom, or a variety of other online options. ATK contact information can be found online at http://atk.ku.edu/contact-atk. Please let us know how we can assist you in meeting your AT needs.
Once you know the device that meets your needs, it's important to consider possible funding options. ATK staff will work with you to review public and private funding resources, identify the ones most likely to fit your situation, and assist you in completing applications and submitting required funding documentation. ATK has experience working with a variety of public and private funding sources such as Kansas Rehabilitation Services, Kansas Medicaid, Infant Toddler Services, public education, Medicare, Veterans Affairs, private health insurance, Rural Housing Grants, Friends of Man, etc.
ATK also works with the Kansas AT Loan Program (K-Loan). K-Loan offers flexible preferred rate financial loans for assistive technology devices and services. A K-Loan may be used to pay for part or all of the cost of the assistive technology you need. Visit the K-Loan website at www.k-loan.net »
