Top Five Funding Resources for Assistive Technology in Pennsylvania

The next MoneyTalks webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, December 16 from 4:30 pm – 5:15 pm.

For people with disabilities and health conditions as well as older adults, assistive technology (AT) can greatly improve their quality of life. However, AT can be expensive, and accessing funding can be complicated.  These obstacles can make it difficult to get the exact device you want when you want it; it can also be difficult to get your desired device from the vendor of your choice.

Every year, the Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation (PATF) helps hundreds of people navigate the maze of programs and funding options for AT. In this webinar, presenters David Gates, PATF Board Member and Senior Attorney with Pennsylvania Health Law Project, and Susan Tachau, PATF Chief Executive Officer, will lead you through the top five funding resources for AT in Pennsylvania and offer some insider tips on funding AT from personal experience.

Join us to learn about:

  • Creating an assistive technology funding strategy;
  • Choosing a funding resource for your AT in Pennsylvania;
  • Braiding multiple funding resources;
  • Advocating for what you want and need; and
  • Appealing funding denials.
