What is Assistive Technology? (AT)
Assistive technology is any tool that can be purchased, modified, or created that helps a student to access their education. Assistive technology is available in any setting and academic area of study, including reading, math, studying, organization, executive functioning, writing, notetaking, communication, computer access, access to materials, and aids for daily living. AT tools range from a simple, low-tech device (such as a pencil grip), to a complex, high-tech device (such as a dynamic display communication system).
