To discover what MATN has to offer, explore some of its many tools, information, and opportunities:
JHU/CTE AT Cycle
Developed by The Johns Hopkins School of Education Center for Technology in Education (CTE), the five-step AT Consideration Process leads IEP teams systematically through considering assistive technology for students with disabilities.
The mATch up Tool provides information on low, mid, and high tech devices for meeting the unique needs of students. The tool was designed with a variety of users in mind – teachers, parents, administrators, and in some cases, students themselves.
