More and more, as our students use laptops in ever greater numbers, we find our current model of assistive technology software purchasing and distribution is becoming irrelevant. Right now we have a lab with desktop computers and AT software installed on them which are not getting the use they once did. What kinds of models do some of you have at your universities to loan software to students? Do you loan software for a specific period of time? Do you buy copies of software for students? How do you budget for and fund this?
We know that the AT lab model is becoming a thing of the past but I sure would love to know what you are doing as our AT models evolve.
