About Us

Technology plays a vital role in education by increasing engagement and empowering students to pursue learning in and outside of the classroom. Today, most classrooms are equipped with technology that provides options for ways in which students access the 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 both school and community life. 

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 provide coaching to districts on the use of accessible technology tools to increase engagement in curriculum and instruction. SETC’s work integrates AT and accessible tech with statewide initiatives, such as Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS).   

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 for students receiving special education supports or 504 accommodations through the use of technology across learning environments.
