What is Assistive Technology?
Assistive technology (AT) is an umbrella term for products that can assist people with disabilities to perform tasks more easily or independently. Students registered with Disability Services for Students (DSS) can meet with a professional staff member to discuss what types of AT they may be eligible for and receive training on how to utilize such products to access their curriculum.
Choosing the right AT to meet the educational needs of each student can be challenging therefore, DSS provides a range of available technologies - such as text-to-speech and speech-to-text software's, note-taking solutions, magnifying products, and iPads loaded with helpful apps for college students.
