About Campaign

This campaign is created in conjunction with Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) on 20 May 2021. GAAD is a global event that shines the spotlight on the digital access and inclusion for persons with special needs.

Beyond just digital access, accessibility also encompass environmental accessibility. Through suitable and trained use of Assistive Technology, and by creating barrier free accessible environments, enhanced opportunities can be created for independent functioning of persons with special needs.

Assistive Technology (AT) is defined as any item, piece of equipment, or system, whether acquired commercially, modified or customised, that is commonly used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals.

Leading this effort in CPAS, The Assistive Technology (AT) Hub supports in incorporating AT in extended settings, such as classrooms or homes of our beneficiaries to enhance classroom learning, and maximise their independent functioning.

Examples of AT include:

(1)Switch interfaces to access computers, learning resources or toys
(2)Activities of daily living aids ranging from low tech solutions such as a universal cuff to high tech feeding robot
(3)Mobility Aids such as walkers and powered wheelchairs
(4) Smart Home Technologies and Virtual Assistants for Environmental control

Your generous donations will help fund services such as the CPAS AT Hub. Thank you for joining us in enabling accessibility through AT!
