What is assistive technology?
Assistive technology is any device, software, or equipment that helps kids with disabilities access their education. AT plays a significant role in reducing barriers to learning, and it enables kids who learn and think differently to work around their challenges and play to their strengths.
Think of AT as:
- A related service that augments your child’s learning
- A partner to well-designed instruction
- A tool to help your child be more self-confident, work more independently, and set and meet their goals.
