The CCATC has been providing assistive technology service in Central California for the since 1998. CCATC is vendored to provide these services through the California Department of Rehabilitation, Tri-Counties Regional Center and the County of San Luis Obispo. CCATC has accumulated an expansive library and demonstration center full of technology that can positively impact an individual’s life. Coupled with these existing resources the CCATC has created a valuable network of local service providers including The Braille Institute, Independent Living Resource Center, Tri-Counties Regional Center, VTC, Inc. and the California Department of Rehabilitation who together work to serve all individuals with disabilities. Assistive technology services are a specialized and often missing component in the quest to enable individuals with disabilities to live as independently as possible.
