Access Alley

Assistive Technology (AT) refers to tools and gadgets that assist people with disabilities in living more independent, fulfilling lives. PACE’s Access Alley is a program we offer to a significant part of the underserved triangle between Chicago, Saint Louis, and Indianapolis. In this vast area, there are some locations where you can see different pieces of technology, but, we are one of very few locations where you can see and try these items.

ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY DOESN’T
HAVE TO BE COMPLEX.

IT INCLUDES:

Low-Tech Devices

Wheel grips for manual wheelchairs

Reachers

Large-print playing cards

High-Tech Devices

A thermometer-sized device that can read out loud to students with learning disabilities.

A portable speaker to allow someone with hearing loss to move the TV’s sound closer to them.

A headset that allows people with significant visual impairments to see farther distances.
