Learn more about this exciting federal program for students with visual impairments!

The Center for Assistive Technology Training (CATT) is a federally funded project providing technology directly to students who are visually impaired. The Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind (AIDB) and APH have collaborated to make assistive technology devices available to TVIs and to students who are blind or low vision. Training is also available to teachers working with students who are blind or low vision as well as students themselves as requested – all at no cost. Type of equipment and training is determined on a case-by-case basis.
