Product in Focus: Reading Essentials

19 May 2023

Assistive technology (AT) is any device, software program, product, or object that supports a person in their daily activities - whether it is a ring pull for opening cans, a mobility aid like a wheelchair or walker, or communication devices such as Eye Gaze equipment. 

The simple items can make a difference in someone's life, and they don't have to be complex or expensive to allow the user to have more independence and engage in their hobbies, like reading.

As the weather starts to get cooler this week, it’s the perfect time to settle in with a good book, and these products can help make reading easier and more accessible for you – whether it is a romance novel, cookbook, or a university textbook.
