Funding Assistive Technology

From the UCP website <www.ucpa.org

United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) is pleased to offer you a series of booklets developed by Neighborhood Legal Services National Assistive Technology Project and UCP. These booklets contain the most up-to-date information on funding assistive technology through the health, education and Vocational Rehab systems.

Funding of Assistive Technology - The Public School's Special Education System as a Funding Source

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 1997 (IDEA) offers many exciting opportunities to support students with disabilities, family members and school personnel through the use of assistive technology. UCP is pleased to provide with you a comprehensive document that gives you with the most current information on the state of the law and AT funding. This document should provide you with a working knowledge of the relevant laws, regulations and interpretations of them as they relate to a school district's obligations under the law. We hope you find this publication useful and find it useful in helping families and students with disabilities gain access to technology.

Funding Augmentative and Alternative Communication Devices Through Medicare - The Decision Making and Appeals Process for Non-HMO Participants

As the number of adults with disabilities eligible for Medicare increases, the use of this untapped resource for funding creates new funding options for individuals seeking augmentative communication devices. We hope you find this publication useful in your continuing efforts to fund technology for those who need it.

Funding of Assistive Technology: State Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies and Their Obligation to Maximize Employment

This publication covers important topics of critical importance to individuals with disabilities who are entering the workforce including students transitioning from school, assistive technology for the college student, and the availability of assistive technology.
