The Center for Accessible Technology's (CforAT) focus is on access to computers and technology for people with disabilities. We do this so children with disabilities can succeed in school, adults with disabilities can find (and keep) jobs and all people with disabilities can use the internet, email and benefit from the digital revolution.  CforAT also provides business consulting services to corporations, libraries and government entities. We provide assistance on creating accessible websites and have a test bank of users with disabilities to test products and services.

CforAT provides a broad range of services, related to how people with disabilities use technology to live independently.

Our services can be divided into three categories:

Direct Service, where we work with individuals, family members, employers, and school districts to determine appropriate service for individuals with disabilities

Consulting Services, where we work with businesses, libraries, government entities and other non-profit organizations to provide customized solutions for accessibility issues

Advocacy Services, where we work to ensure that the issues and concerns of people with disabilities are considered when policy decisions are being made.


For children with disabilities, we provide full AT Assessments as part of an individual student's IEP. This is a comprehensive evaluation of a student's technology needs, with a detailed report that becomes a part of the child's IEP. You can read more about an AT Assessment.

We offer Keyboarding classes for kids in grades 4-12. You can read more about our Keyboarding classes.

We have a lending library of iPads and iPods for use by anyone who has speech/communication disabilities. These are loaded with various apps that convert the iPad into a speech generating device. You can read more about our iPad Lending Library.

We work with clients of the Department of Rehabilitation to provide appropriate technology aimed at assisting them in finding a job, or in accommodating a current job. You can read more about our DR Services.

For more information about what we do, please email us with any questions about our programs and services.
