Assistive technology tools for learning are those that support the student academically within the curriculum or for skills that enhance and promote autonomy, such as augmentative communication or social skill development. Typically, in our classrooms, these tools are used to support adaptations. They can also be used to increase access to the curriculum or reduce barriers in the environment for the student.
The assistive technology consultants have created a list of assistive technology tools that can be used for supporting teaching and learning in the areas of: literacy, numeracy, augmentative and alternative communication, social skills, organizational, executive function, and study skills support, alternate formats and student engagement.
*Please note that these lists are continually updated and suggestions are very welcome. Please submit your recommendation here.
