Connecting the Assistive Technology profession, pooling their combined knowledge and passion for assisting those with disabilities, while enabling the sharing and archiving of creative and supportive solutions.

Founded in 2015 as an Ontario, Canada focused network connecting Assistive Technology professionals, N.O.A.T. has grown beyond the borders of Ontario.

Open to all Assistive Technology and related professionals, regardless of geographic location, N.O.A.T. is a Community of Practice providing an opportunity to share, learn and grow from and with other AT professionals.

As our membership is limited to the Assistive Technology profession, N.O.A.T. is a place to connect with other professionals, build resources, and share knowledge and support. All in a respectful, open and collaborative environment.

Members of the N.O.A.T. Community are professionals who individually support persons with disabilities. N.O.A.T. itself does not provide support to end users.

The N.O.A.T. Community Of Practice is an online hub for Assistive Technology Professionals to gather, share, and develop our professional selves, and the profession itself.

Our Community of Practice includes

  • Assistive Technology discussion forums

  • Networking Opportunities and Expertise Exchange

  • Crowd-sourced AT Resource Database - The AT Brain

  • Virtual Open AT Talks

  • Continuing Professional Development and Education Opportunities

As individuals, we can't have all the answers.

The N.O.A.T. Community of Practice brings together the combined wisdom of the profession.
