New Partnership Benefits FODAC Clients In Assistive Technology

Greetings from Ryan and Stephanie at Chattahoochee Technical College’s Occupational Therapy Assistant Program! We’ll be doing fieldwork at Friends of Disabled Adults and Children for the next nine weeks. This is our first fieldwork experience in the program and we are excited to get started! We are here to assist FODAC with broadening the services that are provided through the Assistive Technology Program.

We’ll be focusing on education regarding different types of assistive technology. Many clients do not know what is available to them. Throughout our stay, we’ll complete demonstrations on a variety of assistive technology devices that aid people in everyday life activities. Topics we plan to demonstrate include:

In our partnership with FODAC, we will be identifying additional needs that clients are living with … and help provide an enhanced service to our client members who would benefit from assistive technology. We are already very impressed with FODAC and the people who work there every day. Everyone we’ve interacted with shows dedication and a passion to help their clients in any way possible.

We also plan to share our occupational therapy knowledge to build a client-centered assistive technology department that their clients will continue to benefit from long after we’re gone. We are grateful and excited to be working with an inspiring organization. Stay tuned for updates and announcements on the assistive technology department throughout the next nine weeks.

Sincerely,

Ryan James, OTAS & Stephanie Simonson, OTAS
