We can CreATe Together!
CreATe Together matches users and makers together and supports the making process. We make solutions WITH you - not for you.
Do you know what you need but can't find it at a store? We might have an idea for a simple solution or know how to find someone to help you make what you need.
Using common materials and creativity, makers are creating all sorts of tools and solutions with people to make life easier.
3D Printed AT
CreATe Together has several partners that have 3D printers! We have curated our own catalog, but we can print any open source file. Take a look and request an item.
Request Something Custom
CreATe Together matches AT makers with AT users.
- An AT Maker is any person who has a skill or can follow directions and wants to help someone be more independent. Skills might be in an area like electronics, engineering, or sewing, arts and crafts, woodworking, 3-D printing, or computers.
- An AT User is any person who uses a tool or technology to be more independent. AT users often have an idea of what they wish they could do or have made.
- An AT Solution is the creation of a tool by the maker(s) and user(s) together. An AT Solution can be anything from a wheelchair mount, weighted blanket, modified clothing, personal self-care tools, access to devices with a switch or voice, special furniture, modified kitchen tools. – The possibilities are endless.
CreATe Together provides support and guidance throughout the entire process.
