Assistive technology is an umbrella term that includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities.  This includes the process used for selecting, locating, and actual use.

Assistive technology promotes greater independence by enabling people to perform tasks that they were formerly unable to accomplish, or had great difficulty accomplishing.  This is done by providing enhancements to, or changing methods of interacting with, the technology needed to accomplish such tasks.
