The Arc Tennessee and the Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Summer Community Forums on Enabling Technology
WHAT IS ENABLING TECHNOLOGY?
Any item, equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercially, modified, or customized that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities.
Sometimes called Assistive Technology or Remote Monitoring, enabling technology includes audio, video, sensors and apps, some with GPS-capability, for use in homes and in the community. It’s a model that combines the best of technology and direct care to create safe environments while maximizing the independence of people with developmental disabilities.
