North Dakota Assistive

Description: We are ND Assistive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, that connects people of all ages and abilities to assistive technology devices and services to help them learn in school, work, access the community, and live safely and more independently in the home of their choice. Since 1993, ND Assistive (formerly IPAT) has been one of the 56 Assistive Technology Act Programs in the United States, providing a range of services to increase awareness of and access to assistive technology for people in North Dakota. In addition, ND Assistive administers several other state and federal contracts and delivers assistive technology services on a fee-for-service basis. ND Assistive serves both North Dakota and Minnesota in varying capacities.
ND Assistive staff assess needs and recommend assistive technology solutions for children in schools, transition-aged youths, people who want to work or continue working, and anyone who wants to be independent. We offer shortterm equipment loans so people can try assistive technology before they buy it. We identify funding options to help get assistive technology devices into the hands of the people who need them. We also have two Home First Demonstration Centers in Fargo and Mandan– simulated home environments equipped with assistive technology in every room. Here, anyone can interact with and learn about devices to help them live more safely in their homes.
