Along with free communication equipment and software, we provide training in your home, allowing you to take full advantage of the powerful features and functionality that today's communication technologies provide.

iCanConnect serves people from a wide range of backgrounds, including older people who have lost their sight and hearing later in life, people with Usher and CHARGE Syndromes, and others with combined significant vision and hearing loss who meet federal income guidelines. The equipment we provide includes smartphones, tablets, computers, screen readers, braille displays, and adaptive software.
