Resources for the Educational Community
PaTTAN develops and disseminates a wide variety of resources to support the educational achievement of all students, including students with disabilities.
Accessible Instructional Materials (AIM) Center
The AIM Center assists local school districts in obtaining specialized formats of instructional materials for eligible students with print disabilities. Specialized formats include digital text, audio, braille, and large print.
Short Term Loan
The PaTTAN Short Term Loan (STL) Program is a library of assistive technology and resource materials available to local educational agencies (LEAs) for trial and evaluation. The STL Program provides assistive technology and resource materials to educators, and provides LEAs with the tools to effectively assess and evaluate the assistive technology needs of students up to age 21.
PaTTAN offers publications on a variety of topics, all focused on achieving educational results for students, including students with disabilities. All publications are available for downloading. Hard copies are available for select publications, which can be ordered using the cart feature.
PaTTAN offers ongoing training opportunities in the form of workshops, guided practice, seminars, statewide conferences, distance learning, video conferences, and online courses. Many of the training opportunities have accompanying support materials to further explain the concepts addressed in training and to provide “take home” materials for learners.
PaTTAN pulls together a library of high quality online resources with descriptions. Our Links put information in the hands of local educators, administrators, parents and other education professionals.
