SERC, in collaboration with the CT Tech Act, has established an Assistive Technology (AT) demonstration site and lending library. Educators, family members, and students can make an appointment with SERC staff and try out AT devices, learn about iOS and Android apps, and become familiar with research trends in the field of assistive technology.
The low-, mid-, and high-tech AT devices are designed to meet the needs of students with a broad range of abilities. In addition to demonstrating the use of the devices, SERC staff can provide information on how to create low-tech AT using everyday materials as well as the importance of AT in accessing, participating in, and progressing in the general education curriculum.
Educators may reserve the space to conduct AT assessments and use the available AT devices for trials. Patrons may also borrow AT devices for home use.
