The Department of Education (provincial government) has a program whereby eligible students can receive Assistive Technology for use at school and home. Schools must apply for this and their application must meet certain criteria to be successful. The following link will take you to the Department’s website page that deals with this program, and links on this page explain the criteria and the process for applying.
