We believe that every person with disabilities, regardless of the type or severity, deserves the opportunity to decide how to live, work, and take part in their communities.

The Assistive Technology Training Center of Connecticut is dedicated to helping people facing obstacles to independent living.

We focus on the needs of each unique individual. We start with a careful assessment of the needs, interests and desires. Then, we provide the training needed as well as the transitional support from learned dependence to increased independence.

When and where needed, the Center’s team provides an appropriate level of monitoring for security and safety.
