*Please note that the ATLC promotes and encourages all users to engage in independent learning of assistive technology. While the staff provide training, suggestions and support, students entering the lab in person and/or via Zoom should be prepared to do their own work (i.e. send emails, type papers, basic research). In addition, in alignment with all open access labs the ATLC is guided by specific rules and policies that are supported by OSD and the University student code of conduct.
