About Illinois Assistive Technology Program

The Illinois Assistive Technology Program (IATP) is the non-profit organization designated as the Statewide AT Program funded under the Assistive Technology Act of 1998, as amended. IATP’s lead agency is the Illinois Department of Human Services, Division of Rehabilitation Services.

IATP’s mission is to increase access to and the acquisition of Assistive Technology (AT) devices and services for individuals of all ages with disabilities. IATP provides AT information and services in the areas of education, employment, community living, and IT/telecommunications. Our goal is to improve the quality of life of all Illinoisans with disabilities and enable them through greater access to assistive technology devices to fully participate in all aspects of life. We believe disability is a natural part of the human experience and in no way diminishes a person’s right to:

  • enjoy full inclusion and integration in mainstream society:
  • benefit from education;
  • pursue meaningful careers and;
  • enjoy self-determination and make choices.

Our Mission Statement

For people without disabilities technology makes things easier, for people with disabilities technology makes things possible.
