V-LINC provides technological solutions to improve the independence and quality of life for individuals of all ages with disabilities in Maryland. We do this by helping people learn about and use existing assistive technology devices and software for computer access and by creating one-of-a-kind, customized assistive technology. We aim to help people with disabilities meet their educational, vocational, and independent-living goals.
Assistive Technology for Computer Access
We help pair clients of all ages and abilities with the right computer software and hardware, devices and/or strategies for their needs. Our Assistive Technology Specialists can assist you or your child/client/employee/student in exploring technological solutions to assist in completing tasks ranging from accessing a computer to improving time management skills. Learn more about these services.
Customized Assistive Technology Services
We design and build customized assistive technology (AT)—or modify existing technology—to enable you or your family member/client/employee/student to live, work, and play more independently. Assistive technology is not one-size-fits-all. When commercially available assistive technology does not meet one’s needs or when the technology needed does not exist, V-LINC creates it. Our volunteer engineers, carpenters, machinists, nurses, and physical and occupational therapists work together to invent technology that increases our clients’ independence.
