At Norfolk State University, we are continuously researching and updating materials and equipment and collaborating with colleagues and experts across the state and the country in various fields of technology. Realizing Assistive Technology is a process as much as a product, it is imperative that we provide high-quality technical assistance for our students during their educational experience.

Access to the AT Lab

Students currently enrolled with a documented disability in our program will receive access to the AT Lab. They will be able to use the specialized hardware and software that level the playing field in their endeavor to excel. Each student qualifies for an assistive technology evaluation. The assistive technology evaluation is the process of determining which device best facilitates the student’s efforts to achieve. Assistive technology is any device or process to assist a student with a disability in his or her efforts to accomplish a task that would otherwise be difficult or impossible without the assistive technology. In that vein, Norfolk State University has established an Assistive Technology Laboratory.
