About the CATE Lab
The Center for Adaptive Technology in Education (CATE Lab) was designed for use by disabled students, staff and faculty to incorporate the use of computers and related technology into the learning and working atmosphere of Eastern Michigan University. Successful integration of adaptive technology enables the user to participate equally in all aspects of the higher educational environment.
The CATE Lab provides technology evaluations to students with permanent or temporary disabilities for the purpose of determining how adaptive technology can improve the learning environment.
Individualized and group training on adaptive technology is provided in the CATE Lab, through online instruction and on-site at students' homes and work environments.
The CATE Lab also serves disabled staff and faculty upon referral from Human Resources. Employees with permanent or temporary disabilities are given a technology evaluation and the recommendation of appropriate adaptive equipment where needed. There is no charge for usage of the CATE Lab.
