Updated Notice (May 6, 2020): To keep our staff and those who we serve as safe as possible during the COVID-19 outbreak, WATAP has suspended our short-term device lending, face-to-face device demonstration, services provided through the iCanConnect WA program, and in-person trainings and public outreach events through at least May 31st. We are placing requests for services on a wait list and we will provide these services on a first-come first-served basis as soon as we are able. 

We are offering phone and online consultations as well as device demonstrations via video conferencing whenever possible. We are also offering assistive technology webinars in the upcoming weeks. Follow us on FaceBook and Twitter for the latest updates and announcements.

We continue to evaluate the extent we can continue to provide our other services, so please check back for updates and do not hesitate to contact us via 800-214-8731 or watap@uw.edu. Thank you for your patience.

Welcome!

The Washington Assistive Technology Act Program (WATAP) provides resources and services to persons who face challenges related to disability and aging to help in the selection and use of assistive technology (AT) to help make tasks easier or possible in school, at work, at home, and in the community. WATAP serves seniors and persons with disabilities, and their circle of support, including family members, caregivers, employers, service provider professionals, educators, and others seeking AT expertise. 
 
WATAP is located at the University of Washington Center for Technology and Disability Studies (UWCTDS), within the Center for Human Development and Disability (CHDD). Our work is supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living, and other funding sources.
