AT Peer Mentors

Image of three people with disability holding cards that describe what AT menas for them. They are laughing and smiling at the camera.  Cards say, AT equals freedom, AT equals inclusion and communication, AT equals independence and freedom and knowledge in accessibility.  The world of assistive technology (AT) can be difficult to navigate alone.

AT Chat was created by people with disabilities, for people with disabilities to simplify the process of finding AT to Live, Play and Work.

Based on the feedback we received from our community of AT users, AT Chat is expanding to offer a world-first AT service that pairs an AT Peer Mentor with experienced health professionals to provide an AT service like no other.

What is a Peer Mentor?

An AT Peer Mentor is an expert AT user with lived experience and AT training who is dedicated to applying their knowledge to help people reach their goals.

AT Chat is currently in the process of formalising a team of peer mentors who are expert AT users in a range of areas of AT that are willing and available to assist novice and developing users with peer support and mentoring around AT solutions.

Help build Australia’s best AT service.
