Assistive Technology is any object, device or tool that allows one to live independently. Assistive Technology may be as simple as Velcro on shoes or as sophisticated as computer software for the visually impaired. There is a wide variety of assistive devices and technologies, with new ones being developed all the time.
Independent Learning Resources helps individuals of all ages and disabilities to acquire the necessary assistive devices for their needs. ILR fosters relationships and shared resources of various community-based organizations and businesses to help meet this need. With the resources offered through ILR, the need for relocation to a facility is often eliminated, allowing the individual to live independently.
We also assist and instruct in the proper use of these devices and technologies, so that maximum benefit can be gained.
