Family Center on Technology and Disability

Ever wonder about what's happening with captioning in America? How about the use of descriptive audio? Or what's happening with assistive technology? The Family Center on Technology and Disability is a federal program funded from the Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs and managed by a partnership of organizations, including the Alliance for Technology Access (ATA), Parent Advocacy Coalition for Educational Rights (PACER), Center for Assistive Technology and Environmental Access (CATEA) and InfoUse, Inc.

The center has a great website. Check out their monthly newsletters available online, explore their assistive technology resources database, or read through their AT success stories. They also have Family Information Guides to Assistive Technology and more resources in Spanish.
