Assistive Technology Services

The Adaptive Technology Lab (AT Lab)

Disability Services supports and maintains accessible computer workstations with Assistive Technology in the AT Lab. Assistive technology (AT) makes it possible for individuals with a wide range of disabilities to perform functions that might otherwise be difficult or impossible. Here in Disability Services at Northeast, we do our very best to support success in each of our students through one-on-one personalized training and ongoing support. Through training, students are exposed to and gain knowledge of tools which enable them to use their accommodations and assist with study and organizational skills.
