Wednesday, Sept 29 | 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. EST
Presented by the Golisano Center for Special Needs at SUNY Upstate Medical University
AT Village (www.atvillage.org) is a quality improvement initiative that seeks to improve families’ experience with the Durable Medical Equipment (DME) process, to promote interprofessional collaboration, and to develop community standards for timely delivery of DME for children with developmental disabilities. AT Village makes it easier for families and care teams to work together to get kids with disabilities the Adaptive Technology (AT) they need in order to do the things they like to do! The AT Village web resource was launched in 2021 by the Golisano Center for Special Needs at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, New York.
Join us for this special presentation to learn how to better access Adaptive Technology and DME for your loved one.
Registration is not required.

Mission and Vision
Quality Improvement Initiative
In this section, we try to keep things simple by providing step-by-step instructions for obtaining DME that fall into the following categories: (1) Seating, Positioning, & Mobility, (2) Home Equipment, (3) Home Modifications, (4) Accessible Vehicles, (5) Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).
In this section, we share information about community solutions for accessing adaptive equipment that extends beyond DME and that is reimbursed by insurance. These community solutions include loan closets, equipment shares, maker spaces, sports & fitness programs, outdoor recreation opportunities, local parks, school districts, accessible transportation, and grant & funding options.
In this section, we provide resources for physical, occupational, and speech therapists, including a directory of therapists in CNY, sample letters of medical necessity, and handouts about how to obtain a variety of different types of DME.
