Accommodative Testing and Adaptive Technology Center
The Office of Disability Services at the University of New Orleans established the Accommodative Testing and Adaptive Technology Center (ATATC) to perform two vital functions for students with disabilities and the faculty of UNO. The first is to provide a centralized facility for the provision of academic accommodations by the ODS staff. The second is to provide a centralized location for adaptive technology for use by students.
While they serve the entire UNO community, there are a number of departments at UNO that routinely provide especially valuable services to students with disabilities. We have described some of these below, listing their phone numbers and locations.
There are a number of organizations, public and private, non-profit, that serve persons with disabilities. Some serve persons with all types of disabilities; others serve particular populations. You should be aware that there are much greater pools to draw on fro, the local, state, and national levels.
