Assistive Technology Resources and Support

  • Supporting Student Access to Education

    Assistive technology is designed to increase, maintain or improve functional capabilities of students with disabilities.

    Examples of assistive technology can include: an arm support for a student to access the keyboard, talking software for a student who cannot speak or a portable word processor for a student who cannot write. The Individuals with Disabilities Education ACT (IDEA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act require districts to provide necessary assistive devices that allow the student to access a free and appropriate public education and remain in the least restrictive environment as determined by the CSE or 504 Committee. Refer to the regulations or your school district for detailed information.
