Welcome to the website of the Assistive Technology Resource Centers of Hawaii (ATRC).

ATRC is a nonprofit whose mission is to link people with technology and empower individuals through its use. ATRC is also the State of Hawaii's designated AssistiveTechnology Act agency. 

Our primary role is as an education center for anyone interested in Assistive Technology. We do not sell products. We will recommend vendors if requested.

We have been providing Assistive Technology Services for the State of Hawaii beginning in 1991!  Wow, how technology has changed for all of us and we believe persons with disabilities have benefited tremendously.  You can learn more about ATRC and Assistive Technology through this website, on our Facebook page, and by contacting our office.  We look forward to meeting and assisting you in any way that makes Assistive Technology more familiar and usable for you. Take the opportunity to browse this site, see what we currently offer and contact us at any time for service, program information, and assistance related to ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY.

Barbara Fischlowitz-Leong, 

Executive Director / CEO
