What is Assistive Technology?

Assistive technology is any device, piece of equipment, or operating system used to support student learning. Assistive technology allows learners to use their strengths to bridge learning gaps and support their individual needs.

 

For Students

We offer a comprehensive and focused approach to building student capacity using assistive technology. Individual sessions begin with diagnostic assessments of individual strengths and needs. We use these diagnostics to create a personalized assistive technology program to build on the student’s learning profile. With each lesson, we develop increased technological fluency and independence. Students leave our program as engaged, independent learners capable of managing their daily academic responsibilities. Our students take accountability for their own learning, using the tools we develop together.
