Technology For Life

Our 2018 "Technology for Life" event will raise awareness of the many uses for AT devices and highlight amazing stories of people who, without much fanfare, embody the hope that LATAN provides for people with disabilities and functional limitations.

Technology for Life will honor people working in the areas of public policy, education, media and public relations, business, and volunteerism as well as charitable nonprofit organizations and governmental agencies that help people gain access to assistive technology.

Rehabilitation Services


LATAN offers comprehensive Assistive Technology (AT) Assessments to Louisianans with disabilities and functional limitations. During an AT Assessment, we  will determine an individual’s needs as it relates to performing a particular activity within a specific  environment (i.e. home, work, school). 

Assessment services provided:

  • Educational Technology Assessments - Make assistive technology recommendations based on the physical and cognitive needs of students as they pursue vocational goals
  • Worksite Assessments – Provide recommendations to overcome barriers and increase the productivity of employees or prospective employees.
  • Computer Access Assessments – provide recommendations on an array of adaptive hardware and software to allow physical access to a computer-based device.
  • Home Access Modification Assessments – examine the home and provide recommendations to improve access and remove barriers.
