Center for Assistive Technology Training
The Center for Assistive Technology Training (CATT) Project is a collaboration between the American Printing House for the Blind (APH) and AIDB. Our goal through this program is to pair the provision of assistive technology devices to students who are Blind/Visually Impaired with training on how to effectively use the device. This training is for the student using the devices, the teachers working with the students and the family members that are a part of the student’s life. Devices are purchased through APH and training is provided through AIDB employed trainers. Although the initial participants will be mostly from the state of Alabama, the CATT project serves a nine-state region; Alabama Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
