Welcome to the Southwest ADA Center technical assistance page.
Information Technology (IT) Assistance to Schools
Access to information technology is critical to the success of students with disabilities—both in school and in their lives beyond. Unfortunately, in too many educational settings, IT is inaccessible to students with disabilities. We offer technical assistance to schools and other educational entities as a way to promote the acquisition and use of accessible IT. Specifically, we offer assistance on meeting the requirements of the Rehabilitation Act and the Telecommunications Act. These laws complement the ADA by requiring removal of electronic barriers in education.
