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 Utah, Perkins School for the Blind is responsible for iCanConnect, and works with Utah Division of Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired to provide in-state service. Contact Chris Wakeland with questions about applying in Utah, 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.
