  • A lending library of toys, switches, augmentative communication devices, alternate keyboards and other computer input devices, environment control devices and software designed for students with special needs.
  • Staff development on topics including assistive technology overview, augmentative communication, alternate computer input, software solutions and environment control.

SETC supports:

  • All public school districts in the state of Washington and the personnel who work in those districts.
  • Any student, preschool through age 21, who formally receives special education services and who may require assistive technology to access their education.
  • Families of special needs students. (Services must be accessed through the school district serving their child.)
