Government & Advocacy

  • 1986 - The Education of the Handicapped Amendments of 1986 (PL 99-457) was passed which added part H, Handicapped Infants and Toddlers, to the Education for All Handicapped Children Act dictating that each family and handicapped child receive (1) a multidisciplinary assessment of unique needs and the identification of services appropriate to meet such needs; and (2) a written individualized family service plan developed by a multidisciplinary team, including the parent or guardian.[1]


Technology

  • 1992 - Intellitools, Inc. files a patent for the IntelliKeys keyboard. It is unique in that the keyboard automatically detects the key overlay that is inserted and responds appropriately, reducing setup time and user training. [2]
