The following Issue Briefs have been developed by the AT3 Center to support State AT Program efforts to increase access to and acquisition of assistive technology. 

Issue Brief on Workforce Investment Opportunity Act (WIOA) and Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS)

This brief clarifies when WIOA Pre-ETS funding can be used to support assistive technology and when such funds cannot be used for AT. 

Issue Brief on the Affordable Care Act

This brief provides a high level overview of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and how it supports access to and acquisition of assistive technology under various provisions of the ACA. 

Issue Brief on the Legal Requirements for Voting Accessibility

This brief provides a review of the legal requirements for voting accessibility with particular attention to the accessibility of voting systems used by individuals with disabilities to mark, verify, and cast an official ballot.  

Issue Brief on ESSA and Accessibility

This brief provides highlights of the ESSA accessibility requirements for assessments used for accountability purposes along with general web accessibility requirements and how they intersect with ESSA provisions for information dissemination. While the ESSA rules have been rescinded, the statute provisions still apply and the prior rule language on accessibility is instructive.
