UNITED CEREBRAL PALSY OF EASTERN CONNECTICUT is newest partner of the Connecticut Tech Act Project
Quaker Hill, CT – United Cerebral Palsy of Eastern CT (UCP) announced today that it is the newest partner of the Connecticut Tech Act Project, a program within the Department of Rehabilitation Services (DORS.) The CT TECH ACT PROJECT partnership with UCP expands opportunities for people with disabilities living in Eastern CT to gain access to needed adaptive tools and technology for use at work, school and for community living.
Today’s technology allows people with disabilities the opportunity to do for themselves what they previously could not. UCP partnered with the CT TECH ACT PROJECT to expand its device lending and demonstration center, located in Quaker Hill at the UCP office, to provide local individuals and families with the assistive technology, adaptive equipment and other tools and resources they need to independently access their community, school and work.
“We are proud to be a part of the CT TECH ACT PROJECT for the opportunity to connect the people we serve with these vital resources.” said Jennifer Keatley, Executive Director, UCP Eastern CT.
UCP works to advance the independence and full citizenship of individuals with disabilities, focusing on individualizing community based services to meet the needs and choices of those it serves. For more than 70 years, UCP has worked to ensure the inclusion of individuals with disabilities in every facet of society. United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Eastern CT educates, advocates and provides services to ensure a life without limits for people with a spectrum of disabilities. Together with a network of affiliates, UCP has a mission to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with disabilities by supporting more than 176,000 children and adults every day.
