Concentration: Assistive Technology
The Assistive Technology (AT) program at the University of Louisville is a concentration within the Masters of Education in Special Education, designed for all professionals. The AT concentration does not lead to teacher certification, and therefore does not qualify graduates to teach special education in the school system.
This concentration involves the use of technological tools and devices to remove barriers for those with disabilities and addresses the importance of universal design and accessibility. This concentration in assistive technology gives graduate students the knowledge and skills necessary to use various assistive technology to address the needs of persons with low incidence and/or severe disabilities.
The goal of the program is to offer a master's degree that will advanced one's knowledge and further their expertise in the specialized area of assistive technology.
Most online courses are delivered in an asynchronous format (accessed anytime, anywhere). Some courses are accessed via webcam in interactive, synchronous sessions after 4 p.m. ET, on specific weekdays.
