iCanConnect is a national program with local contacts to help people stay connected with friends, family, their community, and the world. iCanConnect provides free equipment and training to people with both significant vision and hearing loss who meet disability and income guidelines.
In Washington, Perkins School for the Blind is responsible for iCanConnect, and works with The Washington Assistive Technology Act Program (WATAP) and others to provide in-state service. Contact The Washington Assistive Technology Act Program with questions about applying in Washington, and download an application.
People eligible for iCanConnect receive an assessment to identify solutions to support their distance communication goals. Then, participants are provided equipment and training that meets their needs. Examples include smartphones, tablets, computers, and braille devices.
