Assistive Technology Department
The Assistive Technology Department works cooperatively with the student’s treating OT and PT, parents, and vendors experienced with providing adapted equipment to children with special needs. Weekly clinics operate on site with outside vendors to service children with adaptive equipment needs. The professional staff assist parents in providing written justification to support the insurance approval process. The Orthotic Clinic evaluates students for lower extremity and foot correction through use of orthotics.
These students are experiencing the freedom of independent movement in their own brand new equipment. What a feeling of independence! Self-initiated navigation of their environment is an empowering experience!!
Assessment, training, evaluation and insurance justification support is provided by the Assistive Technology staff at Carman Road School. Two of our providers have the Assistive Technology Professional Credential, a competitive certification issued by the Rehabilitation Engineering Society of North America, rendering them uniquely qualified to assist your child with his/her equipment needs. Contact your child's therapist, or the Assistive Technology department at (516) 608-6256, for further information.
