This bulletin describes the activities of the PAM Assistance Centre, a project supported by Michigan Special Education Services. The bulletin focuses on the Centre's role in nurturing quality educational opportunities for students with disabilities. The paper outlines several challenges in adapting to the uniqueness of a child with a physical or sensory impairment, and the need for consideration of both low and high technology aids in meeting these challenges. It describes the development of the Centre as a source of information for matching available technological devices with the needs of individuals with disabilities and their caregivers. Samples of information requests received from Michigan school districts are listed, organized within the following themes: specialized support and the continuum; curriculum; emerging populations; young children; vocational; transition; and general education. The education themes of various PIAM (Physically Impaired Association of Michigan) publications are also listed. PAM Assistance Centre's other activities, including school-related presentations, promotion of accessibility, and efforts aiding personnel development, are also noted, and plans for the future are specified.
