Assistive Technology

  • “Devices that extend the abilities of an individual in ways that provide physical and/or sensory access.” (Roblyer and Doering, 2013)

  • Device or tool that can aid in a person with a disability completing an everyday task.

    Examples: wheelchair, braces, captioning, braille, hearing aids, etc


Idea individuals with disabilities education act

IDEA- Individuals with Disabilities Education Act

  • National law that ensures services to children with disabilities.

  • Schools are to provide special help and services to meet individual children’s needs.

  • Participation of parents is also key with the IDEA. Parents should be involved in the process of meeting the child’s individual educational needs.


Iep individualized educational plan

IEP- Individualized Educational Plan

  • Plan that can be put in place for students with disabilities or learning disabilities.

  • The team writing the IEP must consider assistive technology when creating the plan for an individual with a disability.

According to the Center for Parent Information and Resources, “More than 6 million children with disabilities receive special education and related services.”

  • Cell phones- allow the student to take pictures of information given, communicate through texting, and visual resources through apps


Assistive technology for students with visual impairments

Assistive Technology for Students with Visual Impairments

  • Braille Printer- receive data information from the computer and then prints the information into Braille text


Assistive technology for students with visual impairments1

Assistive Technology for Students with Visual Impairments

  • Digital Talking Books- books played out loud for the student to hear instead of read

  • Digital Talking Book Player- allows the student to play the book he or she wants read aloud


Assistive technology for students with visual impairments2

    Contains point markers for the student to accurately locate points to graph.


Assistive technology for students with learning disabilities

Assistive Technology for Students with Learning Disabilities

  • Calculator- tool that allows the student to compute an answer, but still ensures that the student understands the concept


Assistive technology for students with learning disabilities1

Assistive Technology for Students with Learning Disabilities
