Assistive Technology: Making the Impossible Possible
Starkman, Neal
T.H.E. Journal, v34 n1 p27-32 Jan 2007
Assistive technologies are helping students who do not respond to conventional means of instruction. This article presents a glimpse of today's world of assistive technology: hardware, software, and systems for students who can not quite get by with the usual pedagogy. A keyboard that is color-coded and arranged alphabetically. An audio book that lets users hear what they're reading--at several speeds. A 21-inch wand that can be used to manipulate objects on an interactive whiteboard. A school that tailors its curriculum to individual modes of learning. With each technology comes numerous success stories. This article describes a few that stand out.
