SMILES assists people with disabilities as they work to eliminate barriers. Assistive technology, any customized item, piece of equipment or product system used to improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities is a primary tool in this effort. The program is available to individuals with disabilities, family members, service providers, and the community at large.
The program offers:
- Training and one-on-one support.
- Lending and Demonstration Library which allows individuals to try a piece of technology in their home or work environment for 30 days to determine if the technology meets their need(s).
- Assistive Technology demonstrations within the Region 9 area.
