Definitions Used for the Classification System
The classification system project employed a broad definition of AT so as to avoid omitting
devices or services that might be beneficial to persons with disabilities. These definitions, as
specified in the legislation, are noted below.
Assistive Technology Device.

Any item, piece of equipment, or product system, whether
acquired commercially off the shelf, modified, or
customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve
functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities (20
U.S.C. 33, ?1401 (25)).

Assistive Technology Service.

Any service that directly assists an individual with a
disability in the selection, acquisition, or use of an
assistive technology device. This includes:
0Evaluating the needs of an individual with a disability,
1Purchasing, leasing or otherwise providing for the
acquisition of AT devices,
2Selecting, designing, fitting, customizing, adapting,
applying, maintaining, repairing, or replacing AT devices,
3Coordinating and using other therapies, interventions, or
services with AT devices,
4Training or technical assistance for an individual with
disabilities or family of an individual with disabilities, and
5Training technical assistance for professionals,
employers, and others who provider services to, employ,
or are otherwise substantially involved in the lives of
persons with disabilities (20 U.S.C. 33, ?1401 (26)).

iii

Conventions Used in the Tabular List
The National Classification System for Assistive Technology Devices and Services uses certain
abbreviations, punctuation, symbols, and other conventions, which need to be clearly
understood.

Punctuation
[]

Brackets are used to enclose synonyms, alternative wordings, or explanatory
phrases.

()

Parentheses are used to enclose supplementary words which may be present
or absent in the statement of a device or service without affecting the code
number to which it is assigned.

{}

Braces are used to enclose a series or terms, each of which is modified by the
statement appearing at the right of the brace.

Type Face
Bold: Bold typeface is used for all codes and titles in the tabular list.
Italics: Italicized typeface is used for all exclusion notes and to identify those rubrics,
which are not to be used for classification of devices and services.
Instructional Notations
Includes: This note appears immediately under a three-digit code title to further define, or
give examples of, the contents of a particular category.

Excludes: Terms following the word “excludes” are to be coded elsewhere as indicated in
each case.
