Ershig Assistive Technology Resource Center

Welcome to the E-ATRC


The Ershig Assistive Technology Resource Center (E-ATRC) is a 'hands-on' lending library and demonstration center, located in Woodring College of Education (WCE) on the campus of Western Washington University (WWU), that houses hundreds of support technology tools.

The Center's purpose is to increase awareness and use of assistive technologies in order to improve participation in life, and increase access to learning for a wide range of individuals with diverse needs.

Assistive Technologies have historically been considered for individuals with complex disabilities. However, affordable AT options are now available to help meet the diverse needs of a wide range of individuals in our society, not just those with significant disabilities.

To learn more, watch the E-ATRC video, browse the E-ATRC Database to view our current inventory, or explore the additional links to the left.



If you, your program, or your organization would like more information about the Ershig Assistive Technology Resource Center and the application of Assistive Technology to your needs, please feel free to email the center director, Linda Schleef, below.
