Assistive technology assignment
Assistive Technology, or AT, is technology that can help students with disabilities to reach educational goals and participate in the classroom setting. An assistive technology device can be any item that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of a child with a disability(www.idea.ed.gov). There is an exception, however, of those medical devices that are acquired through surgery that may help improve a student with disabilities, these devices are not considered assistive technology.
