Pacific northwest adaptive library
Many of the gadgets we use everyday are not made for people with diverse abilities, and that can make life challenging for people experiencing disabilities. Assistive Technology bridges that gap. At the Pacific Northwest Adaptive Library, individuals with disabilities can check out assistive technology tools for free, a service currently not available anywhere else in Washington State. The Mobility & Communication team organizes “Hackathon” events where the community can learn to make electronic toys more accessible.
The PNW Adaptive Library is made possible thanks to a partnership with the Taskar Center for Accessible Technology and the Husky Adapt student organization at the University of Washington. You can find the lending library at PROVAIL and it is open to the public.
