MCC Receives Assistive Tech Grant

Middlesex County College received a grant for almost $15,000 from Disability Rights New Jersey’s Assistive Technology Advocacy Center. The grant will allow MCC to enhance and expand its own Assistive Technology Lab in Johnson Learning Center. The Assistive Technology Lab, which is administered by Seham Mohamed, lab coordinator, offers a variety of hardware and software to students with disabilities.

The enhancements include: Three 15-inch portable video magnifiers; two magnifiers that link to computer tablets; two talking graphing calculators; and one talking scientific calculator. The equipment will be used in the lab and available for students to borrow.
