From Commissioner Charles Carr: As you navigate your way through this website you'll soon realize that it is the culmination of the wonderful work of eight Massachusetts human services agencies and our constituents with a shared vision of empowering people with disabilities, as well as the general public, with affordable, accessible Assistive Technology (AT) and information.
