What Type of Tech Help Do You Need?

COMMUNITY RESOURCES GUIDE FOR TECHNOLOGY HELP

Do you need help with common everyday technologies to better live your life?  This guide lists community resources in the Fairfax Area that can help you to better understand and utilize a wide variety of technologies including assistive technologies. 

The guide has two parts.  The first part is organized by the type of tech help that you might be seeking and whether their service is free, through membership, insurance coverage, a government benefit, or is fee-based.  Their method of their service is also indicated – either online, online webinars, over the phone, In-person classes, or one-on-one in person.  The second part is organized as a list of providers by name.  Information about this guide and how it was developed can be found on the last page.
