Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology

The Office of Specialized Services and Supplemental Instruction is able to provide Assistive Technology (AT) to our students. Students may borrow AT during the Fall, Spring or Summer semesters to aid with reading, writing, organizational, computation and spelling needs. Students must return equipment each semester, even it is used during two consecutive semesters.

Students will be held responsible for failure to return borrowed equipment each semester or the failure to replace damaged equipment. Failure to return borrowed equipment will result in the privileged being revoked and/or a registration hold.

Please contact the Director, Ms. Jennifer Aitken, for more information on AT loans.
