Tablets and other assistive technologies hold the potential for improving the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. However, many of these items are costly and can be unaffordable for both the average person as well as non-profits.
There are funding sources that may provide financial assistance to people with disabilities and organizations that assist them. We came across a great resource at Pursuit of Research, www.pusuitofresearch.org, on some funding options HERE.
Applying for a tablet through these organizations is not a guarantee, but it’s worth a shot!
