The Assistive Technology Training Center (ATTC) program provides instruction in computer access to students with a broad range of disabilities, using the latest assistive technology available (both hardware and software). Students learn to use such access strategies as screen readers/speech synthesizers, voice-recognition systems alternate keyboards, specialized multi-sensory word processing programs, mouse alternatives, and other assistive hardware and software appropriate to their learning needs.
