Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?

We are located in 128 Rivers. If you are standing on 5th Street facing the building, you go through the middle door with a ramp and we are the first door on the right.

When are you open?

We are open every day Monday-Friday from 8AM-5PM. However, we do close the IHAT Center when we have face-to-face PD sessions. Please refer to our online calendar for when sessions are scheduled.  

Can I check assistive technology devices out? If so, how?

Yes, you can check out many of our AT devices, except for our Apple products and a few select other items. You may call, email, or stop by to request a device and IHAT Staff will check it out for you. Up to five (5) items can be checked out for two weeks at a time.

Can I visit with my service recipient or client to the AT Lab?

Yes, of course! All of our equipment is free for you to explore. We encourage people coming in to see what AT would work best to suit their needs. *Please understand that the IHAT Center does not conduct AT Evaluations and make recommendations. You are encouraged to make an appointment with your school district AT personnel or contact NCATP.org if you are in need of an AT evaluation.

What are the PD sessions?

Our PD sessions are a Professional Development series that we offer. They act as training in specific areas of assistive technology. Currently we offer 12 face-to-face and 9 Blackboard sessions.

What PD sessions do you offer?

In our face-to-face sessions we offer: Introduction to AT & UDL, SMART and UDL, Boardmaker, AT for Literacy and UDL, and Alternate Access.

On Blackboard we offer: All face to face sessions, plus Making Adapted Books, AT Assessments and Evaluation, and AT for Behavior.

How do I register for sessions?

Registration for our face-to-face PD sessions can be done at http://www.coe3.ecu.edu/IHAT/. If you attend classes on-campus, you are required to go to the face-to-face sessions and cannot be enrolled in our Blackboard site.

I'm a DE student, how do I register for the PD sessions I need?

Most DE sections of courses are automatically enrolled in IHAT's Blackboard site via their course roster. If you are not in our Blackboard site, you can email the IHAT Center at atcenter@ecu.edu to request registration - please include your course name, number and section in your email. We will enroll you as soon as possible.
