Assistive Technology and Universal Design: A Toolkit for Interagency Collaboration

Assistive technology is technology used by individuals with disabilities in order to perform functions that might otherwise be difficult or impossible. In support of Assistive Technology Awareness Month, the ICDR is releasing a toolkit on assistive technology and universal design (AT/UD). This toolkit aims to address the ICDR’s goal of improving interagency collaboration on accessibility and to provide an overview of current research efforts in AT/UD across the federal government. Innovative AT/UD examples from the private sector, as well as a collection of AT/UD tools and resources are included in this toolkit, encouraging future research and collaboration in these areas.
