    Lessons Learned for Effective Technology Implementation
    In 2006, CITEd announced the Technology Implementation Partnership (TIP) initiative to provide technical assistance (TA) to a small group of districts interested in integrating technology into their curriculum as a way to offer differentiated instruction. The initiative gave CITEd the opportunity to connect research to practice and work one-on-one with individual schools and districts as they implemented technology plans to address the needs of all learners, particularly those with disabilities.

    Assistive Technology:
    Assistive technology is technology used by individuals with disabilities in order to perform functions that might otherwise be difficult or impossible. Assistive technology can include mobility devices such as walkers and wheelchairs, as well as hardware, software, and peripherals that assist people with disabilities in accessing computers or other information technologies. For example, people with limited hand function may use a keyboard with large keys or a special mouse to operate a computer, people who are blind may use software that reads text on the screen in a computer-generated voice, people with low vision may use software that enlarges screen content, people who are deaf may use a TTY (text telephone), or people with speech impairments may use a device that speaks out loud as they enter text via a keyboard.

    About Funding for Assistive Technology
    Finding funding for assistive technology (AT) devices and services can be challenging. You may not be eligible for a program because of age, income or type of disability; or the device you need or want may not be covered by the program for which you DO qualify. You may need to find assistance from several programs, and put those resources together in order to come up with the funding for the AT you need. PIAT's Information and Assistance may be able to help you find funding resources for the assistive technology you need.

    Consumer's Guide to Funding Assistive Technology
    A tremendous variety of assistive technology (AT) is now available to enable people with disabilities to live independently, to achieve higher levels of education, to participate in activities of the workplace, and to engage in hobbies and recreational activities. When people with disabilities and their families seek to purchase these products, they often find that AT products can be expensive and that locating and obtaining financial assistance to purchase them can be a frustrating experience. Funding is often difficult to find and may seem to be unavailable. Even when people with disabilities and their families locate a source of funding, they are often confronted with a maze of eligibility requirements, restrictions, paperwork, rules, regulations, and denials and refusals. This Informed Consumer Guide discusses a broad range of potential sources of funding and funding information for assistive technology and provides lists of specific organizations and programs from which funding and funding information are available. The guide also discusses other sources of information on funding issues and organizations that assist people to find the funds that they need.
