Administrator's Desktop Guide to AT

Coming Soon!

The Administrator's Desktop Guide to Assistive Technology was originally published by the Technology and Media Division of the Council for Exceptional Children.  In 2016 the copyright  reverted to Gayl Bowser and Penny Reed-the authors.  The NATE Network is in the process of updating and enhancing the content of the guide. But for now,  we are happy to make the manual available to you in PDF format.  Watch for a new and improved version later in 2017!
