TOGETHER, WE ACCELERATE
a strategic plan to narrow the gap for all students with disabilities
FOR OVER 25 YEARS, the Maryland State Department of Education’s Division of Early Intervention and Special Education Services and the Johns Hopkins University School of Education Center for Technology in Education (JHU CTE) have collaborated to bring you the Maryland Assistive Technology Network (MATN).
The need for intentional and strategic integration of assistive technology (AT) into specially designed instruction and daily routines is critical as educators, providers, and family members engage in remote, hybrid, and/or face-to-face instruction.
MATN has provided a professional network, meaningful information,professional learning opportunities, and state-of-the-art resources throughout the decades to educators, providers, and family members.
TOGETHER, WE ADVANCE
Over 100,000 students with disabilities in the community in Maryland receive special education services. By law, assistive technology must be considered for each of these students.
