  2. 2. What is Assistive Technology? Assistive technology is a term relating to assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities.
  3. 3. Turn & Talk What are some types of Assistive Technology (AT) in your classroom?
  4. 4. How can AT Help Students with ADHD? Incorporating the use of timers with students who are ADHD can help keep attention focused and reinforce behavior with appropriate time rewards. Set up predetermined break times for students to work towards. If students exude on-task behavior for a certain length of time, they can be rewarded with a sticker on their behavior chart or the advancement of a clip on a Behavior chart.
  5. 5. How can AT Help Students with Auditory Impairment? Students with hearing disabilities can be serviced within the classroom with the incorporation of a wireless microphone and headset. The teacher clips the microphone onto his/her shirt collar, and the student wears a headset that synchs via Bluetooth to hear. Students can control the volume and also keep their hearing impairment discrete.
  6. 6. How can AT Help Students with Reading and Writing Disabilities? Incorporating the use of tablets within the classroom, students can work in pairs to follow along with videos, PowerPoint presentations, and other visual projections through the use of the tablet. Students can use apps geared toward reading and writing easily, and students can have more instant feedback from the use of software geared towards their specific needs.
