Computer lab trainings provide hands-on assistive technology opportunities to public
school personnel and families of students with disabilities.
These labs seek to promote the use of AT in the classroom and enhance the student's ability to access the general curriculum.
Programs such as Boardmaker, PowerPoint, Classroom Suite, and Microsoft Word are common topics for training; however, the programs and devices covered will vary
based on advancements in technology and public interest.
