Succinct, yet comprehensive, Assistive Technology is designed to help educators better understand assistive technology and how it can support students with disabilities from early childhood through the transition into adulthood. This practical book is organized around the purpose of technology and the support it can provide rather than a student’s disability categorization. Grounded in research and filled with engaging case studies and activities, author Emily C. Bouck offers an unbiased depiction of the advantages and limitations of technology. Readers are exposed to a full range of assistive technology including  up-to-date coverage of low- and high-technology, as well as free and for-purchase options that can be used to support students with disabilities.

  • Perspective sections in every chapter focus on a range of different facets, such as Research-to-Practice of a particular technology, developing a Technology Mind Set, and connecting the technology to a curriculum.
  • Extension Activities encourage further exploration, such as watching a video – in class or on their own – that is relevant to the technology presented in the chapter.
  • Hands-on Application Activities encourage readers to engage with the different technology resources referenced in each chapter.
