~~“In 1989, the Governor appointed the Department of Education (DOE) as the lead agency for the Maine CITE Program. The Office of Special Services within the Department assumed responsibility for overseeing the activities of the Program.

The Program started with the Department of Education, the University of Maine System and Alpha One as the original partners. Partnerships broadened over the years to include private and public entities that provide AT devices and services to Maine people of all ages and disabilities. This partnership is now known as the Assistive Technology Consortia”
