The INDATA Project at Easter Seals Crossroads is a Coles client and provides information and access to assistive technology, at no charge, for Hoosiers with disabilities.

 

Assistive technology is any item, piece of equipment or product system that is used to increase, maintain or improve the capabilities of people with disabilities.

 

With March as Disability Awareness Month, INDATA continues to share its message with individuals with disabilities and their families throughout the state of Indiana.

 

INDATA’s core services include:

  • Information and referrals
  • Funding assistance
  • Public awareness and education
  • Device demonstration
  • Device loans
  • Device reutilization

 

“Ensuring individuals with disabilities and their families are aware of the full array of resources available to increase their independence is critically important,” said INDATA Director Wade Wingler. “The INDATA Project at Easter Seals Crossroads is committed to participating in disability awareness activities throughout the month of March. We want to share our message of how assistive technology tools can make an enormous difference in the lives of people with disabilities of all ages.”

 

INDATA also provides low-interest, extended rate financial loans to qualified individuals through the Alternative Financing Program (AFP).

 

The loans are used to purchase assistive technology devices such as:

  • Wheelchairs
  • Motorized scooters
  • Hearing aids
  • Augmentative communication devices
  • Braille equipment
  • Computers
  • Motor vehicle/home modifications
