Center on Technology and Disability: Assistive and Instructional Technology Supporting Learners with Disabilities


The Center on Technology and Disability (CTD) is funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). The Center is designed to increase the capacity of families and providers to advocate for, acquire, and implement effective assistive and instructional technology (AT/IT) practices, devices, and services.  Research-based technologies, used appropriately, have great potential to help infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities participate fully in daily routines; have increased access to the general educational curriculum; improve their functional outcomes and educational results; and meet college- and career-ready standards.

Since 2013, we at the Center on Technology and Disability (CTD) have been pleased and honored to bring you a wealth of free, high-quality resources and events on all aspects of assistive technology. CTD has been funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs. Now at the end of its project life, CTD will end on May 10, 2019. However, our resource-rich website will be available to you through 2021.
