    The Wisconsin Assistive Technology Resource Map was created by CESA 2 to connect students with IEPs to assistive technology resources available in Wisconsin. The map displays resources by county, provides guiding questions, and serves as a valuable resource to students, families/guardians, caregivers, case managers/special education teachers, and IEP teams. Resources are available through lending libraries across the state where individuals can select AT resources for trials with students at no cost.
