Assistive Technology for Infants, Toddlers, and Young Children with Disabilities. Alliance Action Information Sheets
Technical Assistance ALLIANCE for Parent Centers
Research shows that assistive technology (AT) can help young children with disabilities to learn developmental skills. Its use may help infants and toddlers to improve in many areas: (1) social skills including sharing and taking turns; (2) communication skills; (3) attention span; (4) fine and gross motor skills; and (5) self confidence and independence. The right type of assistive technology can improve a child's ability to communicate. This in turn may help reduce some negative behaviors. Examples of common assistive technology devices include wheel chairs, computers, computer software, and communication devices. This paper presents information on assistive technology for infants, toddlers, and young children with disabilities.
