Assistive Technology for Access to Computers

Assessing Students’ Needs for Assistive Technology cover image

A student with a physical disability often cannot manipulate traditional classroom tools like pencils, markers, books, and paper. Access to computer-based tools may also be difficult. Fortunately, there are many hardware and software products that assist students with challenges to use computers at school and at home. These tools support individuals with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, and sensory challenges.
