screen readerThe Independence Center is a great place to start if you or someone you know needs a home modification or assistive technology device. Paul Spotts, Independent Living Specialist (Assistive Technology Emphasis) can help you walk through the process of finding out if you are qualified to obtain funding for your home modification needs. The qualification process can take anywhere from 2-8 months.

The most common needs Paul handles are ramps and bathroom modifications. Paul also handles Colorado’s Telecommunications Equipment Distribution Program (TEDP), which provides telecommunications equipment and accessories to qualified deaf, hard-of-hearing, and deaf-blind residents of Colorado.

Unsure if you will qualify? Paul says, “You aren’t going to know unless you ask.” Set up an appointment with Paul to discuss your specific needs by calling (719) 471-8181 x 122.
