Assistive or adaptive technology includes devices, tools, hardware or software that enable people with disabilities to perform functions that might otherwise be difficult or impossible. Monash provides access to many assistive software programs and tools. These are available in adaptive technology rooms (ATRs) in the libraries on most Australian campuses. For more information visit the library website for services available to users with a disability. A referral from the Disability Liaison Unit is required in order to access the ATRs. Some of the software licensed to Monash can be deployed to other Monash computers as required.
For more detail on assistive software and devices please refer to the Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET) factsheet:
