Tools For Your Future

Assistive technology (AT) can play an important role in helping people with disabilities succeed at school and work, but knowing what's available and how to obtain AT can be challenging. That's why STAR created Tools for Your Future a new online learning site designed to increase awareness of AT and provide information about accessing AT in post-secondary settings and the workplace. This site was funded by Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Education, through the federal Carl d. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006.
