Assistive Technologies

Educational assistive technologies (AT) include any digital tools that can help students access the curriculum. For students with disabilities, many ATs are available with standard classroom devices such as iPads and Chromebooks. Although not all types of AT are high-tech, there are many websites, iPad apps, and Chrome extensions that can help students with learning and attention issues. These tools often build on the students' strengths to help them become more confident and learn more independently.

The resources included on this site are recommended for ABRSD teachers and special educators seeking to support all learners in their classrooms. More information about AT to address a variety of learning issues is provided in the following Assistive Technology Overview (below) published by Reading Rockets.
