




Standard computer systems for clients without special needs
Systems designed for blind users
Systems designed for individuals with learning disabilities
Systems designed for low vision users
Laptop systems for those needing portability
Within each of these groups, special considerations are made for necessary
accommodations that an individual client may require.
Computers are integrated, configured and registered by ATR. These systems
are delivered with operating systems, software, peripherals, and updates pre
-loaded, tested and operational.
5
Desktop computer systems come standard with a one-year limited depot warranty, three years on the motherboard, processor and power
supply, and one year on all other components. Laptop computers
come with optional three-year on-site warranties. In addition to manufacturer warranties, ATR will provide initial telephone support for computer systems purchased from us. ATR also keeps track of all necessary serial numbers and documentation required by the manufacturers
of these products. Note that warranties are subject to change per
availability from manufacturers and per the request of the client’s
counselor. Troubleshooting and repair become the responsibility of the
software or hardware company for the period of time specified in the
warranty. ATR can be contracted to perform on-site software reintegration and/or hardware repair.
Video Magnification Systems (CCTVs) Training
CCTV Installation & Training, include:
Setting up the CCTV in the client's home or workplace. This includes
evaluating ergonomic considerations where applicable, stability and
safety concerns of placement, any factors interfering with maximum
visual field, and neck and eyestrain factors.
Training on the use of the CCTV including focusing, adjusting magnification, choosing image options (color, black & white, reverse mode),
writing & printing, freeze frame options (if applicable), X-Y table movement, and any other features that the client may need to explore.
Professional Services
Integration, Installation, Setup & Delivery Services
As mentioned previously, when a client purchases a computer from
ATR, we are able to offer integration services for hardware, software,
along with other necessary accommodations. Clients receive these
systems pre-loaded and tested for compatibility between adaptive and
conventional software, operating system, and peripheral devices along
with the most current Windows, anti-virus, and software upgrades.
These systems can be delivered to and installed at a client’s home,
dormitory or workplace. Note that ATR can also upgrade existing computer systems already owned by clients.
6
Training Services
Training services can be provided at the client’s home or workplace or
at a school district. Training that is done on an individual basis allows
the trainer to teach according to the client’s specific needs. Training
that is done in a group setting for schools are typically ½ or full day
sessions and are limited to up to 20 participants. Instruction can be
provided on all the adaptive software mentioned above as well as basic
computer skills, and the full suite of Microsoft products (Word, Excel,
Outlook, Access, PowerPoint, etc.).
Individual instruction is provided in modules. This entails task-oriented instruction in skill areas such as use of a specific program or hardware function. Because one-to-one training is very effective and requires the full attention of the participant, we typically recommend that sessions last no
longer than two to three hours at one sitting. Depending on the level of
competency of the client, subsequent training sessions may be recommended.
When individual training is purchased from ATR, a follow-up report is provided in electronic format to the Counselor.
Assessment Services—AT, Mobility & Ergonomic
Adaptive Technology Resources, Inc. has been a provider of assistive software and hardware systems for individuals with Low Vision, Blindness,
Learning Disabilities and Mobility Impairments since 1995. We offer onsite technical evaluations and solutions related to a client’s assistive technology, mobility or ergonomic needs. Technical evaluations include:
On-site Consultation and Workstation Evaluations with client and
other involved parties are available and include demonstration and assessment of assistive technology options related to a client’s needs. This evaluation allows ATR Staff to assess a home or work environment in terms of
special accommodations that may be required. It also allows the client to
sample different technology so that a recommendation of assistive technology can be based on the client’s hands-on experience.
Written Evaluation Reports detailing assistive technology options, a client’s ability to use them, and related home or work-site solutions are provided after on-site evaluations are completed. The report will be delivered
electronically (email) or in hard copy (U.S. mail or fax) based upon counselor’s preference. When appropriate, digital photographs will compliment
reports providing a visual “assessment and solutions walk-through”. Of
course, our staff will be available for continued telephone support and consultation to both the client and the contracted agency.

Electronic Aids to Daily Living
Electronic Aids to Daily Living (EADL’s) offer individuals with mobility impairments access to many devices in their home through voice or switch
command. In 1998 we began carrying an exciting new EADL from Tash
International – the Sicare Pilot. With simple voice commands, users
control televisions, VCR's, CD players, lights, medical beds, door openers, telephones and more. Having established our expertise with this
product, we added Minnesota, Indiana and Iowa to our territory.
Since that time, we have added several other EADL’s that we are able to
recommend and install for a larger variety of clients. These include simple telecommunication devices that are switch or voice activated to complete systems designed to control devices in multiple rooms in a home.
ATR provides all on-site installation and training services for these devices. For more information on EADL’s please contact us.

MindPlay
MindPlay reading intervention software helps struggling readers whether dyslexic, mainstream or English Language Learners (ELL). Students of all ages who cannot read lack a
foundation in basic skills like phonics, phonetic rules, grammar, reading comprehension and
reading fluency. With MindPlay’s products - My Reading Coach, RAPS 360, and FLRT - it's
never too late to build that foundation for reading success. MindPlay' educational software
enables every learner to receive individualized instruction, resulting in widespread improvement.
My Reading Coach™
is a phonics-based reading program that
teaches struggling students, and even those diagnosed with dyslexia, to
read. It is the only reading program that provides a virtual reading specialist and speech pathologist for every learner. Embedded Teacher Intelligence™ individualizes phonics, grammar and reading comprehension instruction to help
every learner reach his or her full potential.
My Reading Coach is consistent with the Orton-Gillingham approach and teaches students to
read text to maximize comprehension and improve fluency. With My Reading Coach, struggling readers and dyslexic students of all ages are empowered to become fluent readers.
MindPlay T.E.A.M.™: RAPS 360® (Reading Analysis and Prescription
System) is a diagnostic assessment system with embedded progress
monitoring. Diagnostic assessments provide teachers with information
about a student's prior knowledge or gaps in their reading skills. It helps
teachers quickly diagnose why a student is not reading or comprehending grade level passages.
MindPlay T.E.A.M.™: FLRT® allows students to practice fluent reading and reading comprehension. Fluency is the ability to read text quickly, accurately and with good comprehension. This system trains students to process words from left to right efficiently. Students
quickly move from word recognition to reading comprehension to reading fluency.
Students optionally practice with either decodable or authentic text. Both expository and
narrative passages are included. Up to eighteen different reading comprehension skills are
tested including: main idea, drawing conclusions, author's purpose, and context clues. Reports highlight student progress for a grade, class, or an individual student. Students should
be fluent with decoding and phonics before using MindPlay
T.E.A.M.™: FLRT®.
My Reading Coach is endorsed by CASE, Council of Administrators of
Special Education

Eye-Pal, Eye-Pal SOLO & Eye-Pal Vision
Eye-Pal:
Converts print into speech and Braille for the deafblind Faster than a flatbed scanner and weighing in at just 1 lb.,
Eye-Pal is a portable USB scanner/reader that instantly converts
printed material into speech, text files or refreshable Braille. EyePal may be used with the most popular Braille displays or for use
with a PC or Mac computer. Best of both worlds. Eye-Pal is now
compatible with Kurzweil K1000
The Eye-Pal SOLO reads almost anything printed aloud without a computer — books,
newspapers, mail, labels, bills, directions, even text on a crumpled piece of paper — quickly and
easily. And it’s so simple to use that even people who have never used a computer — from an
80 year old blind grandmother to her three year old granddaughter- anyone can use it right out
of the box. The Eye-Pal SOLO was developed to enable anyone who is blind, lower-vision challenged or neurologically disabled—to easily assimilate any type of printed text and “read” what
they’ve been missing.
Easy. Easier. Easiest.
The Eye-Pal SOLO is the productive performer that is easy. Just plug
it in, place down a book or newspaper and within seconds it begins
to read aloud. On the wrong page? No problem. Simply remove it
and replace it with the right page. Eye-Pal SOLO is so precise and
responsive that it stops reading immediately and resumes on the
correct word. Now connects to a Monitor!
The Eye-Pal Vision
When your eyes get tired, have Eye-Pal Vision read to you. A smart magnifier that also reads
aloud. Auto-focus, zoomable camera magnifies a pill bottle, recipe and other fine-print materials.
Automatically determining an object’s size, Eye-Pal Vision adjusts itself to provide a true-to-life
image and the most accurate OCR.
Magnification (CCTV) mode Eye-Pal Vision serves as a powerful electronic magnifier. View a
family photo, a map, play Crossword or Sudoku puzzle magnified up to 40x. Change contrast,
color combination, and brightness of an image with a single key stroke.
Scanning/Reading mode Built in Scanning/Reading mode frees a person from the use of a tiring X-Y table that is ever-present in a conventional CCTV. Eye-Pal Vision reads aloud any text placed under its camera.
Place a book, document or a piece of mail on the base and, in a few seconds, the text will be read aloud. It can be displayed on a monitor or
home TV. Patent-pending motion detector automatically senses when a
new page is placed under the camera. Zoom-in or Zoom-out on the displayed text, change contrast and color combination with a stroke of a key.
The document can be placed in any direction and Eye-Pal Vision will read
it. Navigate through a document with hand gestures or arrow keys on the
keypad. Everything is at your finger tips.

Zoom-Ex & Zoom-Twix
Zoom-Ex is the seamless integration of an instant digital scanner
and a lightning fast OCR. It allows you to convert any printed text into
multiple accessible formats like speech, large print, sound file, text file,
etc. – within seconds. Zoom-Ex is easy to use, too: the foldable stand
holds a digital scanning camera that is always at the exact distance
needed to create a clear image. Low vision users know exactly where to
place the material to be read because they can touch and feel L-shaped
edges of the stand. Zoom-Ex works with any IBM compatible personal
computer.
Zoom-Ex is four powerful tools in one:
1. Instant Reader: It’s the world’s first instant book-to-speech tool — proprietary OCR software
provides lightning fast performance for real-time page-to-speech.
2. Smart Magnifier: It’s a magnifier that eliminates the need for an X-Y table and delivers text
wrapping on screen for easy reading.
3. Book Scanner-Reader: It’s a fast 20ppm scanner (allowing you to keep books bound and intact) that provides you with OCR.
Real-time CCTV: This mode allows you to use Zoom-Ex as CCTV magnifier up to 12X on 19”
monitor.
Zoom-Twix
takes the easy to use proven technology of Zoom-Ex - the seamless integration of an instant digital scanner and a lightning fast OCR - and adds a zoomable long distance
camera to capture what’s on a whiteboard, on your desk or in the room—at any zoom, all controlled from your laptop’s keyboard.
Zoom-Twix Features
 Portable: Weighs just two pounds and folds down like a tripod to travel in your laptop bag
 Intelligent Design: Folding black anodized aluminum support legs act as an alignment guide
for material to be scanned
 Fast OCR: because you can’t afford to let anything slow you down
Four-Tools-In-One:

of Indiana, Wisconsin and Indiana Veterans Homes, Mayo Medical Foundation, Sister Kenny Rehabilitation Institute (Minneapolis), Schwab Rehabilitation Hospital (Chicago), and Bethesda Rehabilitation
Hospital (Minneapolis), just to name a few.
Here’s what others have said about Phil: I wanted to take the time to give praise to Adaptive Technology Resources and especially Phil Dellegrazio. I have been working with Phil for many years and
have found him to be knowledgeable, friendly, and most of all professional. Phil takes great pride in
offering state-of-the-art equipment with customer satisfaction guaranteed. He presents with genuine
concern for the client, examining the need, never trying to sell unnecessary merchandise. Phil pays
great attention to detail and goes to great lengths to get correct answers. Whether through phone,
voicemail, or email, he is always available and has impeccable follow through. I can rest assured that
Phil will get the job done right and in a timely manner. He has excellent rapport with our Veterans
