The Quality Indicators of Assistive Technology in Postsecondary Institutions (QIAT-PS) research project examines how civil rights and self-advocacy knowledge and skills inform the experiences of students with disabilities who use assistive technology (AT) in postsecondary education. The research is conducted in conjunction with the QIAT-PS technical assistance program.
