Assistive Technology

 

Assistive Technology (often abbreviated as AT) is a term for a piece of equipment, software, or product that can assist people with disabilities to perform tasks more easily or independently. Assistive technology promotes greater independence among individuals in areas that they are unable to accomplish without great difficulty. It is the University's  goal to provide technology that can assist employees with disabilities to excel in the workplace.

Assistive Technology serves as a workplace accommodation. To request an accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), University employees are encouraged to contact the ADA Accommodations Case Manager and complete the Request for Reasonable Accommodation Form. Employees in need of an accommodation will need to provide appropriate medical information to support the request.

If you believe you may need an accommodation, or if you are a supervisor or manager who has been presented with a request for an accommodation, please contact the ADA Accommodations Case Manager, Ryan Bangham, at 860-486-2036 or via e-mail at ryan.bangham@uconn.edu for further assistance.

Refer to HR's guide on the Reasonable Accommodations Process for further information. Students who require an accommodation should contact the Center for Students with Disabilities at 860-486-2020 or csd@uconn.edu.
