Assistive Technology Resources

Technology Related Assistance for Individuals with Disabilities, more commonly known as TRAID, promotes a comprehensive system of access to assistive technology (AT) by individuals with disabilities. An AT device is any item, product or piece of equipment that can be used to improve the functional abilities of individuals with disabilities. The technology can be as simple as a toothbrush holder or as complex as a voice-activated computer system.

Services are available to persons with disabilities of all ages, their families, service providers, employers, educators and others who are interested in disability issues. Our work in early intervention allows us to provide services to infants and toddlers up to the age of 3.

AIM's TRAID Center operates to demonstrate devices; coordinate local technology information and referral; implement outreach, public awareness, education and training programs; promote local advocacy; operate an early intervention assistive technology loan library; and maintain loan closets.

AIM currently maintains two loan closets and invites calls to borrow durable equipment for up to 10 weeks. Available equipment:

Communication Technology

Computers and Software

Daily Living and Safety Needs

Hearing Technology

Learning and Sensory


Home Modifications

Recreation and Toys






Assistive technology allows individuals to become more independent. Assistive technology includes walkers, wheelchairs, communication devices, equipment for the deaf and specially adapted toys.
