Assistive Technology in the Classroom: Enhancing the School Experiences of Students with Disabilities

With an emphasis on the integration of assistive technology into the curriculum, this text focuses on how assistive technology can be used in schools to enhance the teaching and learning of students with disabilities.  This link between technology and teaching and learning drives the book’s organization as well as its content.  It is organized by school-related tasks that students must perform on a daily basis to be successful -- reading, writing, practicing academic skills, and communicating with their teachers and peers – and presents descriptions of technology-based solutions to the obstacles students with disabilities face in completing these tasks. Since being able to access computers is one major barrier, the text features a section on making computers accessible to students with a wide range of disabilities.  A companion web site offers up-to-date information on product names, vendors, web site addresses, and other time-sensitive material.

This book was interesting. The chapters covered a lot of information and were not too difficult to get through. This was a good companion to a class I took on technology for Special Education. ...more
