  • Integrating Assistive Technology into the Standard Curriculum
    Assistive technology (AT) is defined as any item, piece of equipment, or product, whether acquired commercially, off the shelf, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities. (P.L. 101-407, The Technology Related Assistance Act of 1988).
  • WRRC Assistive Technology Information Module
    The Western Regional Resource Center (WRRC) continues to respond to inquiries about the IDEA '97 provisions affecting "assistive technology devices and services" for students with disabilities. Questions about accessible technologies in general from educators, families, state and district departments of education have helped to shape this information module. The intent of this module is to provide links to sites reviewed by the WRRC staff in response to these questions. Selected sites provide information about national initiatives, state wide implementation models and local information for practitioners and families.
