The OTAP newsletter is published two to three times a year. It includes notices of training opportunities, new additions to the loan library and other news of interest about technology for children with disabilities.


OTAP develops and disseminates assistive technology publications covering a wide range of topics for individuals with disabilities, their family members, professionals in the field of disability, and other interested parties. OTAP publications are available online, or requested by calling our office to be sent via mail.  All publications are available in alternative formats, upon request.


Coalition for Assistive Technology (CATO)

Grants of assistive technology are awarded to children with disabilities in Oregon ages two to twenty. Equipment is loaned on a long-term basis to families (i.e., until outgrown or no longer needed). Requested equipment must be needed at home but may also be used at school. The Board of Directors of the Coalition for Assistive Technology (CATO) meets in October, January and April to review applications and make equipment awards.
