Computer Refurbishing Program for Ohioans with Disabilities

Assistive Technology of Ohio has a statewide program that helps people with disabilities obtain their own computer. Knowledge of how to use a computer, the Internet, e-mail and social networking (examples: Twitter, Facebook, Linked-in) are becoming fundamental basic skills necessary for community living, employment and education. Recent studies have shown that, due to financial considerations, people with disabilities are among the most likely group of people to not own a computer. People with disabilities — those who can benefit the most from owning and using a computer — are often the most likely not to be able to afford one. Additional information on the program, such as cost, how to participate etc.. can be found at Assistive Technology of Ohio.
