Professional Support

NATE -- the National Assistive Technology in Education Network -- brings together information from the many fields and disciplines that are involved in assistive technology services in educational settings. We provide that information in a cohesive, integrated manner, so that people from all disciplines can access it.

Through a Mentoring Program contributed by NATE members, we promote and encourage increased awareness of AT applications with people from different disciplines at local, regional and national levels.

NATE Mentoring Guidelines

The mentoring program program is designed to foster the development of mentoring relationships between experienced AT service providers and those new to the field or undertaking new challenges. An informal contract results in which the protégé agrees to ask questions and initiate discussions about specific areas of concern or challenge. The mentor agrees to engage in discussion, provide direction, and give feedback to the protégé.
