We provide assistive technology intervention strategies, tools, and training to maximize learning outcomes of students with disabilities in OCPS. Our team functions as a consultative model to provide support to IEP teams who have identified students with assistive technology needs.  

For AT resources and information school teams can access the
AT Toolkit in Canvas.
