Updated Notice (March 25, 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, and services provided through the iCanConnect WA program through at least April 6th. We will place all requests for these services on a wait list. 

Additionally, we have cancelled in-person trainings and public outreach events for the rest of March and through mid-April and will be rescheduling as many of these opportunities as possible and are considering offering some of these as webinars or teleconferences as well.

We are offering phone and online consultations as well as device demonstrations via video conferencing whenever possible. We will also be offering assistive technology webinars in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned! 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.

Get Assistive Technology

WATAP partners with local, regional, and national organizations to bring valuable services to Washington State residents. Once individuals have made a decision about the assistive technology that will work best for them, finding a way to obtain the device is the next step. These programs are available to Washington residents to help them acquire devices through nontraditional funding sources.

Alternative financing

Through our partners at the Northwest Access Fund individuals have an alternative option for financing AT devices and services, home and vehicle modifications, or business equipment.
