The Mississippi State University T.K. Martin Center for Disability and Technology continues to serve its students remotely, even with its building shut due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

While its building is closed, the center is continuing to reach the special-needs population it serves in its IMPACT Preschool and other programs using video conferencing, Webex software and other technology.

Telehealth services began Monday for several areas, after the center received permission from the Mississippi Department of Rehabilitation Services.

A waitlist will be made for those requiring services from the center that cannot be delivered by telehealth.

The center is still waiting on approval from the Mississippi Department of Health for delivering early intervention services via telehealth, but that some guidelines from the department had been released.
