About Us


State Leaders of Assistive Technology in Education is a community of practice established in 2005. The purpose of SLATE is to develop, support and maintain collaborative work among assistive technology leaders designated by state departments of education in a way that increases awareness, understanding and use of assistive technology and universal design for learning as a tool for educational participation and achievement. SLATE seeks to promote alignment and common understanding, ensures accountability for services, and explores issues of importance through Committees of Common Interest. In addition, SLATE seeks to build connections with other organizations that lead to the provision of quality services that promote participation and high achievement for all students.
