Assistive technology is any item, piece of equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercially or off the shelf, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities. Assistive technologies are devices used by people with disabilities to access computers. Some assistive technologies include text-to-speech screen readers, alternative keyboards and mice, head pointing devices, voice recognition software, and screen magnification software.
ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY LAB
Assistive Technology Labs (a.k.a. High Tech Centers) provide
a campus location for students with disabilities to learn and acquire new
skills for use with assistive computer technology.
The DPS Assistive Technology Lab, which is located in CCE14,
has a large variety of assistive equipment and assistive software. We also
offer an extensive array of assistive technology for checkout, including audio recorders. Our trained tech staff is
available to assist students unfamiliar with the various technology, and
appointments can be made for some formal instruction. Some of our most used assistive equipment and software programs are listed below. If you would like to speak with a tech regarding any of the items listed below please contact Jason Schneck at (909)-652-6393. *Note: Some assistive technology will require counselor referral.
