The Assistive Technology Program for DC (ATPDC) is a city-wide program whose goal is to enhance independence, productivity and inclusion for all District residents with disabilities.
We accomplish this goal by providing education, experience and empowerment in the selection, procurement and use of assistive technology devices and services, not only to individuals but to service providers, government agencies and community organizations as well.
Please note, the ATPDC does not provide free assistive technology devices or services. We also do not sell or offer any products at a discount.
However, DC Shares does provide free durable medical equipment to qualified individuals.
