Helping Students Succeed in College and Beyond:

We can help determine the assistive technology that would enable students to succeed in a college setting, a work setting, or in their daily living. We will work with students on identification of equipment and/or programs focusing on individual needs, such as word prediction and/or text-to-speech programs that assist students in their course work, job related skills, or daily living skills.
