Assistive Technology Lab



Assistive technology equipment and computer software are available for OSD students in a wheelchair accessible environment on the Boca, Davie, and Jupiter campuses. To use the Boca Assistive Technology (AT) Lab, OSD students must first attend an Assistive Technology Lab Orientation. This orientation is designed to provide an overview of all assistive technology available in the lab. This gives the student the opportunity to participate in the process of determining which technology would be best suited for each individual special need. In addition, the lab orientation explains procedures and rules for working in the lab.

Training is available for the following equipment and software:

Questions regarding these applications are always welcomed. In addition, some equipment may be loaned based upon individual need and availability. Our Boca Staff, Stuart and Roland are available for training of students on all campuses. They possess experience and knowledge in all areas of assistive technology as well as learning skills and study strategies.
