Assistive technology is software, hardware, or a device that is used for individuals with disabilities. Disability Services collaborates with other UM departments to provide assistive technology on the UM campuses.
Using assistive technology may be a reasonable modification for students with disabilities. Disability Services provides demonstration, training, and authorization of usage of such assistive technology to eligible students.

Disability Services Coordinators work with students to determine which reasonable modifications they are eligible to use and may want to use, including assistive technology. If there are possibilities of assistive technology being useful to the student, the Coordinator then refers the student to our AT Coordinator for demonstration and training in use of a particular assistive technology.
