Affordable, Custom Do-It-Yourself Assistive Technologies (AT)“: Learn how to make your own custom assistive technologies including sturdy stylus; easy-grip for eating utensils, writing instruments and stylus; Adjustable Tablet Stand; and Privacy Screen. We’ll share local and online sources for inexpensive materials, as well as sources for instructions to make other DIY AT.
