Our Mission

AT Ohio's mission is to help Ohioans with disabilities learn about or acquire assistive technology. Assistive Technology refers to devices, equipment or services that assist individuals with disabilities to function independently in the areas of work, home or school. We offer several programs and services to achieve that goal. We also keep up with current legislative activity that affects persons with disabilities, and educate legislators about the needs and concerns of citizens with disabilities.

Assistive Technology of Ohio (AT Ohio) is a federally funded nonprofit organization that is part of the College of Engineering at The Ohio State UniversityAT Ohio is the officially designated Tech Act program for Ohio. 

The federal agency of Health and Human Services, provides funding for all tech act programs. Each state and U.S. territory provide appropriate services under the guidelines of the Assistive Technology Act of 1998, as amended.

To learn more about assistive technology services and programs in other states, please visit  the National Assistive Technology Technical Assistance Partnership, ( NATTAP) the national web site for state-designated Assistive Technology Programs..
