Improving Functional Capacities and Quality Of Life

There may be special equipment to aid you in living with your disability.  The following organization in the Chicago area can help pair you with tools to improve your life.

The Equip for Equality’s Assistive Technology (AT) Project seeks to help individuals with disabilities in Illinwheelchairois obtain various resources that could enhance their everyday lives. AT can be high-tech or low-tech, expensive or not, medical or non-medical.  Simply put, AT is a tool. It can either be a device or service that is used to improve not only functional capacities of disabled individuals but also their quality of life.  The staff at Equip for Equality can also help with technical assistance, advocacy and, in some cases, they may act as a representative for individuals with disabilities when dealing with Medicaid, Medicare, Special Education, Employment and Vocational Rehabilitation.

Through the AT Project, Equip for Equality offers the following services:

  • Advocates for and represents individuals obtaining AT;
  • Distributes resource information on AT.
  • Provides advice and technical support to disabled individuals seeking AT through schools, vocational rehabilitation services, employers, Medicaid and Medicare;
  • Provides information and referral services needed by disabled individuals to acquire appropriate AT devices or services;
