The Assistive Technology Resource Center of WPI (ATRC) was founded in 1999, its mission to foster the use and understanding of assistive technology, while also assisting in the development or modification of assistive technology devices. As nine years have passed since the development of the ATRC, the Center's involvement within the continually developing assistive technology field caused the managing professors to seek a study of the current best practices for the Center. This report provides information and recommendations to assist the ATRC in the implementation of the best practices for its continued operation, along with a Five Year Plan for the Center.
