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.

The NCD's explanation of these misconceptions can be found at the NCD website. We encourage everyone to become familiar with this very important piece of legislation.
The site also provides some apps that parents may find useful, including games that focus on communication and social skills:

3. P2P USA provides emotional and informational support to families of children who have special needs most notably by matching parents seeking support with an experienced, trained 'Support Parent'. Through a one to one "match" experienced support parents provide emotional support to families and assist them in finding information and resources.

Wheelchair users might not think of the Grand Canyon as a place to visit comfortably, but the accessible-travel writer Candy Harrington says it can be done in “Barrier-Free Travel: The Grand Canyon for Wheelers and Slow Walkers.”
Although it is directed at travelers with mobility limitations, parents with stroller-age children may also appreciate the information on easy-to-maneuver walking paths and stair-free entrances.
Ms. Harrington also describes and photographs specific accessible rooms at the various park hotels, including the historic El Tovar and the adjacent and newer Kachina Lodge, which, she points out, is the only property in the park with an elevator.
For visitors touring by car, the guide provides directions to accessible walkways and restrooms at several popular park overlooks, and for those not wanting to drive, it includes a list of narrated bus tours equipped for wheelchairs.
For travelers who want to reach the bottom of the canyon but can’t traverse the trail down to Phantom Ranch from the South Rim, Ms. Harrington shares information about the little-known 19.5-mile driving route to the bottom of the canyon, reached by traveling through land owned by the Hualapai Tribe.
A package deal is available that includes a picnic lunch, driving permit and overnight lodging at the Hualapai Lodge, where Ms. Harrington praises the accessible parking, level entrance and Room 117.
