Assistive Technology

​Students who have registered with the Department of Special Services have a wide variety of adaptive technology available to them. There is a computer lab with six devices available for student use. Each computer is loaded with Microsoft Office, connected to networked printers and the Internet and has specialized software to accommodate disabilities. The software addresses the needs of students who are visually impaired, have ADD, dyslexia or other learning disabilities, or who need remediation in math, writing and reading.
