Mission Statement

The Special Education Technology Center equips educators and parents with the knowledge and skills needed to create equitable, meaningful, and inclusive learning experiences.

What we do

Technology plays a vital role in education by increasing engagement and empowering students to pursue learning within and outside the classroom. Today, most classrooms are equipped with technology that provides options for how students access their curriculum and express what they know. Some students require assistive technology tools and strategies to reduce barriers to learning. Assistive technology (AT) includes hardware and software designed to provide people with disabilities greater opportunities in school and community life. What is assistive technology?

The Special Education Technology Center (SETC) provides training, an assistive technology lending library, and consultation services to help connect parents and educators with appropriate assistive technology to support preschool through 12th-grade students with disabilities. We also provide coaching to districts on the use of accessible technology tools to support all learners, including students who are English language learners and students who are below grade level. SETC integrates AT and accessible tech with statewide initiatives, such as Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS).
