Due to the ever changing and on-going COVID-19 pandemic, we are temporarily putting in-person device demonstrations on hold and are offering virtual device demos via video/web when possible. We will continue to provide the rest  of our in-person services as long as we are able to maintain the health and safety of our staff and of those receiving our services. We are open for device borrowing requests and iCanConnect WA services.  In-person trainings and public outreach events will continue to be suspended for the foreseeable future. We are offering a variety of assistive technology webinars in the upcoming weeks, so follow us on FaceBook and Twitter for the latest updates and announcements.

Please check back for future updates and do not hesitate to contact us via 800-214-8731 or watap@uw.edu.

Welcome

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, also known as AT. AT helps 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.
