Welcome to the Assistive Technology Resources Section

In this section, you can find electronic documents related to assistive technology services by accessing the links listed below. Additionally, there is a list of some external AT service-related resources that could be helpful for you as well.

If you would like to include any of your existing resources including documentation templates for a specific AT area, please contact Andi Saptono at ans38@pitt.edu

Clinical Practice Recommendations (CPR)

The purpose of the clinical practice recommendations is to assist practitioners in clinical decision-making, to standardize and improve the quality of patient care, and to promote cost-effective prescribing.
