The Assistive Technology Exchange Network — ATEN — refurbishes and recycles donated computers and distributes them to individuals with disabilities.

For these children, technology is more than a tool for learning. It can open the gateway to success in school, interaction with friends, employment opportunities and independent living.

Each year, ATEN provides Illinois students in special education programs with more than 4,000 computers and related equipment donated by individuals and corporations. ATENís recycling diverts more than 300 tons of hazardous e-waste from Illinois landfills annually.

ATEN receives funding from the Illinois State Board of Education. It is affiliated with the National Cristina Foundation, a national nonprofit agency that distributes donated computer equipment to people in need.

ATEN is funded in part by the CME Group Community Foundation.
