ASEL's mission is to facilitate greater opportunities for individuals
with disabilities through comprehensive assistive technology research,
outreach, and information programs.
The overarching goal is to support people with disabilities as they pursue
their educational, vocational, and independent living goals.
ASEL's research program addresses a wide range
of Assistive Technology areas joined by a common focus on the person-machine

programs serve consumers, family members, service providers, policymakers,
manufacturers, and researchers.
In this Web Site, you'll find many different projects, each with
its own unique mission.
ASEL is a unique blend of different programs and services--two Rehabilitation
Engineering Research Centers, a "Tech Act" project, an outreach
program for students with disabilities, an Internet-based training program
for school districts and AT specialists, a Consumer Innovation Laboratory,
and other programs. ASEL brings together these diverse projects so that
they may cooperate to achieve their goals.
