Adaptive Technology and Information Access

The DCP offers a variety of services to students, faculty and staff at UCLA with temporary or permanent disabilities. Give us a call at 310-206-7133 for any disability and technology related question. (Note: “staff” includes teaching and research assistants.)

In partnership with the Office for Students with Disabilities, the DCP will assess your technology needs and create a custom strategy for the use of adaptive technologies that will maximize your productivity. This includes:

  • Evaluation of functional limitations, assessment of tasks to be performed, and recommendation of appropriate technological strategies
  • Training in the use of technologies such as voice recognition, large screen software and displays, voice synthesis, Braille screen displays, and printers
  • Providing a loaner pool of equipment for individuals to learn and evaluate such technology prior to making purchasing decisions
  • Providing loaner equipment for people who have temporary disabilities or who need the use of certain equipment on a short-term basis
