Special Education Accessibility

Services for Schools

The Assistive Technology Partnership (ATP) is a partner with the Nebraska Department of Education helping Nebraska schools (Pre-K-12) identify modifications that meet the needs of their special education students and the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The goal of finding customized solutions that help students be independent and at the same time integrate into the existing facility can take some exploration.

An onsite visit by ATP may include:

  • Brainstorming ideas with administrators, facility staff, teachers, PT/OT, etc.
  • Identifying what solutions could work, answering questions, and coordinating with the Nebraska Department of Education
  • Connecting schools with specialty vendors and sharing solutions other schools have found successful
