Adaptive Technology Support

TASC – Adaptive Technology Support

The TASC provide a variety of computerized adaptive technologies to help provide accommodations for students with special needs. With equipment and software, we offer special services for students with physical (psycho-motor, visual, aural) limitations as well as supports that assist LD students.

Due to noise issues in TASC, the adaptive technologies workstation was moved to the Department Chairs office in Room D-209. The station is ADA-compatible with an adjustable work surface. The hardware includes a 21″ high-resolution monitor, large-key keyboard, large trackball mouse, and a scanner. Some of the available programs are listed below.
