Assistive Technology – Tech for Learning Community

The ADE/ESS Assistive Technology Team presents a grant funded professional development opportunity for district or charter schools each school year. If your school is interested in applying for this grant for the 2015-2016 school year, please contact for more information.

To lay the foundation for capacity building and systemic change in their schools, teams of educators known as Tech for Learning Communities (TLCs) will participate in 13 days of training workshops in fundamentals of assistive technology and Universal Design for Learning during the school year 2014-2015. Training will be conducted by internationally recognized leaders of assistive technology (AT) with support provided by the Arizona Department of Education, Exceptional Student Services (ADE/ESS), AT Team. All team members are expected to contribute to the training of other education professionals in the home public education agency (PEA).
