About us

The Vermont Assistive Technology Program (VATP) is Vermont’s federal AT Act Program. The AT Act programs operate under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Administration for Community Living.

The AT Act Programs help individuals of all ages find accessible solutions to overcome barriers at home, work, and in the community as related to disability and aging related needs. If you do not reside in Vermont, you can locate your state’s AT Act Program at the Association of Assistive Technology Act Programs (ATAP).

VATP is managed by the Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living and partners with the Center on Disability and Community Inclusion (CDCI) at the University of Vermont. CDCI operates three regional AT Tryout Centers and provides AT Services to Vermonters across the state.

We are open Monday - Friday to provide information and hands-on experiences with Assistive Technology. To see what services we offer visit our Services for Individuals page and our Services for Organizations page.

The Mission of the Vermont Assistive Technology Program is to support full access and integration for Vermonters with disabilities and aging related needs, in education, work and their communities.

Our Vision is that everyone’s potential will be supported holistically and that each Vermonter will be provided with opportunities for independence and self-determination. Assistive Technology will be incorporated across all systems to create access to every environment in our state.

The Vermont Assistive Technology Program is supported by the Administration for Community Living (ACL), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of a financial assistance award totaling $447,588.00 with 100 percent funding by ACL/HHS.
