Find a Certified Assistive Technology Professional
If you are a person with a disability or a caregiver, RESNA offers a free, on-line tool to find highly qualified, assistive technology professionals near you. All of the professionals listed in this directory are RESNA certified, which means they have passed an exam to prove that they have the experience and knowledge to provide quality services, and they follow the RESNA Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. To get the best results, we recommend searching by state; you can then sort the cities by clicking on the heading at the top.
State Assistive Technology Act Programs
- information about what devices and services are available and where to obtain them
- device loan and demonstration, and in some states, borrowing programs to "try out" devices
- funding resources for purchasing or acquiring assistive technology
- device exchange and recycling programs that provide individuals with used equipment at little to no cost.
Assistive Technology Financing Programs
Alternative Financing Programs (AFP) can help an individual living with a disability get affordable financial loans to purchase assistive technology. Typical assistive technology purchased through this funding include:
- modified vehicles
- home modifications
- hearing aids
- vision aids
- adapted computers
The RESNA Catalyst Project works with all of these programs. Follow this link to see if your state has an AFP program.
