USU-Uintah Basin AT Lab Open House Brings Public, Service Providers Together

This adapted saddle is an example of assistive technology.

Utah State University-Uintah Basin and the Utah Assistive Technology Program celebrate their new AT Lab with an open house Sept. 7.

The event takes place from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Multipurpose room of the Roosevelt Campus, 987 E. Lagoon St., and it will feature information from many different service providers for people with disabilities.

The Assistive Technology Labs in Roosevelt and Logan help find customized solutions — both high- and low-tech — for people with disabilities to meet their goals in employment, education and living independently. They work in partnership with Options for Independence in Logan and Active Re-Entry Independent Living Center in Eastern Utah.

Many different service providers for people with disabilities in the Uintah Basin will participate in the open house. Look for representatives working in early intervention; low vision; assistive technology; Agrability (assistive technology for people in agriculture); educators; independent living; alternative communication; services for children with special health care needs (including autism); a low interest loan and small grant program; and CReATE (which provides affordable, refurbished mobility devices to Utahns who need them).

A number of vendors specializing in products and services for people with disabilities will also attend.
