One of the many resources at Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) that students have access to is the FACT Fund (Fund for Accessible Computing Technology). The FACT fund was established to assist University of Michigan students registered with SSD in obtaining needed technology in order to increase their learning and academic achievement. Individual grants are specifically available for undergraduate, graduate and professional students with Learning Disabilities. With this grant money, students can purchase iPads, complete with apps that help them with reading, spelling, writing and organizational/study skills as well as other technologies that will help them excel in their studies and build the confidence to pursue their dreams.
