Assistive Technology

Technology Transforms Lives

Innovative assistive technologies transform the lives of people with disabilities every day, much in the same way that technology is changing so many other aspects of today’s world.  Bancroft Assistive Technology experts diagnose challenges and offer the most appropriate solution to: introduce or improve communication, improve mobility and accessibility and help people learn.

This forward-thinking approach has allowed us to expand Assistive Technology (AT) services to meet the needs of people with disabilities and the demands of school districts, physicians, insurers and case managers.

Trevor's Story

Like Trevor, many of the children and adults we serve have breakthroughs when they are given the tools they need to communicate with their family and peers both in the classroom, workplace and community.

We offer all of these innovative methods for people who are aging out of the school system into the world of adult services.
