Texas Assistive Technology Network (TATN) is working to ensure that students with disabilities receive assistive technology devices and services when needed to benefit from a free, appropriate public education. The TATN consists of representatives from each of the Texas Education Services Centers, and the Texas Education Agency (TEA). Region 4 Education Service Center (Region 4) in Houston, TX provides statewide leadership for the network. Through a comprehensive planning process, the TATN has developed a framework for statewide collaboration. Priorities in professional development and technical assistance focus on providing training, products and services that: - build district capacity in assistive technology knowledge and skills - promote strategies for building the literacy skills of all students, and - are aligned with statewide literacy initiatives.

The ESCs listed next to the function are considered the Lead ESC. Each lead ESC is responsible for establishing and coordinating a 20-region network for their function. The purpose of the 20-region network is to ensure ongoing communication between ESCs about state-level needs assessment processes, planning, and implementing and evaluating statewide activities.
