Assistive Technology

Assistive technology (AT) is any piece of equipment, product, or system which is utilized to improve the functional capacities of a person’s learning or living environment and can be used by people with a wide range of abilities. Each user is able to interact with the technology in ways that work best for them, thus incorporating the principles of universal design. Individuals at the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) have access to various assistive technologies on campus to support their academic needs. This section highlights the technologies available to students through Student Accessibility Services (SAS).
