Adaptive Software and Technology Program

It is recognized that access to the proper adaptive software and technology is a critical element in the success of blind and visually impaired individuals. Although adaptive equipment is provided through the schools for students use, there are circumstances where some equipment is not available for student use.

Recognizing that parents may not be able to afford to purchase this specialized equipment, ASVI Calgary has secured casino funding (AGLC) to fund the cost of software and technology needed to ensure the success of visually impaired students of all ages with priority given to school age children.

Therefore ASVI Calgary will provide (pending available funds and individual need) the long term loan of appropriate equipment as approved by AGLC for home use.

Note: the equipment is a loan only and must be returned at the end of the loan period.

Funding for this program is extremely limited and submitting this application along with your ASVI Calgary membership in no way guarantees access to any funding.
