For over 20 years Advancing Opportunities' Assistive Technology Services Department has helped school districts and teachers integrate children with disabilities into regular classrooms.
Each year, our highly trained, certified staff performs hundreds of student evaluations and assessments and provides countless hours of technical assistance and ongoing support to schools and districts all around the state.
AT for Employment Support Professionals Certificate Program
When employment support professionals work with people with significant physical disabilities, they often look for work that the person can do without accommodation. This tendency comes from a lack of training and experience in developing and implementing accommodations and assistive technology.
With funding from the Kessler Foundation, Advancing Opportunities is working to remove that barrier and is offering a fast-paced, two-day certificate program for professionals working in employment, that shows them how to develop and implement job accommodations and assistive technology supports.

Assistive Technology Leadership Institute
Are you looking to increase your knowledge of Assistive Technology? Do you want more training than a full day workshop can provide? If so, join us for an in-depth training institute and discover the range of assistive technology solutions possible in the education field.
This four-day institute will provide you with a deeper understanding of the assistive technology process -- from the initial assessment to the implementation phase. Participants will learn about the areas of technology used most in the education setting. In addition, there will be opportunities for participants to select half-day, hands-on sessions focused on specific areas (such as AT for reading and writing, computer access, etc.)
