Communication & Assistive Technology

Recovery Resources for Communication and Assistive Technology

Following disaster, people with disabilities may have difficulty communicating without the use of assistive technology or assistance from a caregiver. Communication and assistive technology devices may not be readily available or may need to be replaced due to loss/damage. 

The Long-Term Disaster Recovery Toolkit for Individuals with Disabilities is funded through grants awarded by the American Red Cross to Dr. Laura M. Stough at Texas A&M University and Dr. Amy N. Sharp at the University of Texas at Austin and is maintained by the Center on Disability and Development at Texas A&M University.
