  Jessi Wright of WVATS Gave Talk and Demonstration at April Meeting

 

Jessi Wright, Managing Director of the Assistive Technology System(WVATS), spoke at the April meeting to a small but very eager group of listeners. She explained that WVATS belonged to a federal program that exists in all states (ADAP). The West Virginia program has many pieces of adaptive equipment to help people with various conditions including mobility, hearing, and vision. Equipment can be borrowed at no cost for thirty-day trial periods so that the borrower can determine if a piece of equipment is usable before purchasing it. Equipment can also be borrowed by people recovering from temporary conditions so that they can avoid purchase of expensive assistive devices. WVATS has a wide variety of equipment including computer mice and keyboards, portable toilets, shower chairs, telephones for the visually impaired, and amplifier systems for the hearing impaired. Several of the attendees were arranging loans at the end of the talk. Warren arranged to borrow a special mouse and Lowey was interested in a telephone for the sight-impaired.

 

West Virginians can contact WVATS at West Virginia Center for Excellence in Disabilities, 959 Hartman Run Road, Morgantown, WV 26505, 800-841-8436.  The website address is http://wvats.cedwvu.org.  According to the ADAP the equivalent program in Ohio is Assistive Technology of Ohio, 1314 Kinnear Rd, Area 1700, Columbus, OH 43212, phone 614-292-7721, atohio@osu.edu, and at website,   http://atohio.engineering.osu.edu.
