Richard West Assistive Technology Advocacy Center

What is ATAC?

The Richard West Assistive Technology Advocacy Center (ATAC) of Disability Rights New Jersey (DRNJ) serves as New Jersey’s federally funded assistive technology project through a sub-contract with New Jersey’s Department of Labor and Workforce Development. Its purpose is to assist individuals across New Jersey in overcoming barriers in the system and making assistive technology more accessible to individuals with disabilities throughout the state of New Jersey.

ATAC provides funding to sub-contractors throughout New Jersey in order to effectively provide the core services of the AT Act:

Device Demonstrations

ATAC can provide opportunities for NJ residents with disabilities to become familiar with specific types of AT by comparing and contrasting the functions and features of devices through hands on exploration.

Device Loan

Display shelves with an array of assistive technology tools ready to be loaned to a NJ resident!
ATAC provides a library of AT devices available to NJ residents with disabilities to borrow, for a limited time period, to try before you buy. That way you can decide if a device is right for you before purchasing.

Device Re-utilization

Device reuse warehouse with a variety of wheelchairs and other durable medical equipment devices.
ATAC supports the reuse of assistive technology, through a partnership with Goodwill Home Medical Equipment, to get equipment out of the basements / garage and into the hands of NJ residents with disabilities who can use it (at a significant cost savings to the individual).
