OCALI in partnership with the Ohio Department of Education, Office for Exceptional Children (OEC) has opened 2 new resource centers: The Outreach Center for Deafness and Blindness (The Outreach Center), and the Assistive Technology and Accessible Educational Materials Center (AT&AEM).
The Outreach Center for Deafness and Blindness (The Outreach Center)
The Outreach Center for Deafness and Blindness increases access and equity for students and their families who are impacted by blindness, deafness, hearing impairments and/or visual impairments. The site connects resources, training, supports and relationships so that communities can empower and equip students with what they need when they need it to grow, learn and live their best life.
The Assistive Technology and Accessible Educational Materials Center (AT&AEM)
The AT & AEM Center is a centralized, responsive resource center that empowers individuals with disabilities by providing accessible educational materials (AEM), access to assistive technologies and highly specialized technical assistance and professional development support. The AT & AEM Center is a one-stop shop for individuals in need of accessible educational materials and tools – combining the services and resources available through expansion of the former Center for Instructional Supports and Accessible Materials (CISAM) and OCALI AT Center.
