C4AT's focus is on access to computers and technology for people with disabilities. We do this so children with disabilities can succeed in school, adults with disabilities can find (and keep) jobs and all people with disabilities can use their phones, personal computers, the internet, and email and benefit from the digital revolution.

C4AT also provides business consulting services to nonprofit organizations, businesses,  and government entities. We provide assistance on creating accessible websites and have a test bank of users with disabilities to test websites, apps, products and services.
