Computers for Kids
The I.A.T.P. collaborates with Computers for Kids, Inc. and the SDE: Division of Special Education to be able to offer computers to Idaho students with disabilities.
Home Computers for Students on an IEP
There are limited funds available each year to help students with disabilities receive a refurbished computer for home use at no charge. Students must be in public school, in grade K thru 12, and have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). The collaboration between I.A.T.P., SDE, and Computers for Kids covers all fees and costs associated with processing computers for distribution. As part of the application process, students are asked to write an essay or draw a picture explaining why they want the computer and what educational use it will serve.
Computers for Rural School Resource Rooms
Limited funds are also available to pay for computers for Idaho's rural school districts for use in resource rooms. All applications for this program must be obtained and processed through the I.A.T.P. office in order to qualify. Students must have a disability and have an IEP to qualify.
