Communication aids service (ATCOM)

This program is for physically disabled people living at home and who need:

  • a technological aid to communicate
  • adapted computer access
  • adapted telephone access
  • a technological aid to control the environment

How do I access the services?

The services can be accessed through the ID-PD-ASD program access point.


Interventions are performed by an occupational therapist and a speech therapist at 135 St-Raymond Blvd., in Gatineau, and consist of:

  • An assessment of communication needs and the associated functional limits.
  • Recommendations for managers of the PMATCOM program, attesting that the client requires a technological aid to access technologies and communications.
  • Procuring of and training for technological communication aids.
