ATA - Advanced Technology Attachment ) is a national network of technology resource centers, community-based organizations, technology vendors, and individuals who are committed to increasing the use of technology by children and adults with disabilities and functional limitations.
ATA was conceived in 1983 by a group of parents and professionals in northern California Northern California, sometimes referred to as NorCal, is the northern portion of the U.S. state of California. The region contains the San Francisco Bay Area, the state capital, Sacramento; as well as the substantial natural beauty of the redwood forests, the northern in response to the needs of a five-year-old child with cerebral palsy cerebral palsy (sərē`brəl pôl`zē), disability caused by brain damage before or during birth or in the first years, resulting in a loss of voluntary muscular control and coordination. who, it was believed, would benefit from the coming technology revolution. From this small group of parents, consumers, and professionals, the ATA has grown into one of the nation's largest resources to help children and adults who have disabilities and functional limitations gain access to the benefits of assistive technology Hardware and software that help people who are physically impaired. Often called "accessibility options" when referring to enhancements for using the computer, the entire field of assistive technology is quite vast and even includes ramp and doorway construction in buildings to support .
In 1987, the group was joined by a major technology company to form the Alliance for Technology Access, with 11 charter member resource centers in 10 states. In 1989 ATA was established as an independent non-profit organization A non-profit organization (abbreviated "NPO", also "non-profit" or "not-for-profit") is a legally constituted organization whose primary objective is to support or to actively engage in activities of public or private interest without any commercial or monetary profit purposes. . All 40 local non-profit ATA Technology Resource Centers are operated through a collaboration of people with disabilities, family members, and professionals in related fields. All are barrier-free in architecture as well as in attitude and are committed to providing services, information, and referrals for everyone who contacts them. ATA's vendor members include companies who manufacture both mainstream and assistive technology. Associate members include a wide range of individuals and organizations who work in their own communities and seek ways to support ATA's mission. Join ATA now and become part of this vital nationwide network with the most up-to-date information about assistive technology. Your membership will include a subscription to ATA's listserv where you can read and participate in discussions about assistive technology.
