Shared Tutorials and Resources

In an effort to be the statewide hub for information dissemination, MITS is gathering tutorials/inservice presentations from assistive technology personnel throughout the state. All identifying information will be left and credit will be given to the original author.

In addition, MITS staff will create tutorials as well as provide links to manufacturer tutorials. We hope this will eliminate some redundancy and allow AT personnel to spend less time preparing presentations and more time sharing the information.

Please forward any tutorials you are willing to share to mits@edzone.net.
