Paths to Technology

"Paths to Technology is just what I need! Finally there is a resource that deals specifically with this unique, rapidly changing subject matter,” said VI Assistive Technology Consultant, Belinda Rudinger.  “In this day of technological advancements, it has become impossible for one person to keep up with it all, and P2T provides a network for students, parents, teachers and specialists to contribute and share information."
