Technology has changed the world. Unfortunately, for many adults with learning disabilities (LD), the literacy demands of technology are beyond their reach. Since most adults with LD struggle in the area of reading, they are frequently not able to understand higher levels of written language or remember multi-sequence procedures often necessary for accessing and using technology. However, a variety of assistive technology is available for persons with disabilities that is intended to maximize their abilities while minimizing the challenges of their disabilities. The purpose of this issue is to share a selection of assistive technology devices appropriate for adults with language-based learning disabilities or related learning difficulties. Other topics discussed in this issue include: (1) Assistive Technology (AT); (2) AT for Reading Difficulties; and (3) AT for Writing Difficulties. [For Volume 6, Number 3 of "NetNews," see ED493598.]
