  1. 1. Wilfredo PortilloSpring 2013
  2. 2.  Purpose of the literature review Background Introduction Methodology Findings Discussion Conclusion
  3. 3.  The purpose of the literature review is toassess the use of assistive technology withpeople LD.
  4. 4.  What is learning disabilities? What is Assistive technology? What is a literature review?
  5. 5.  How assistive technologies contributes to thelearning process of people with learningdisability? How people with learning disability benefitsfrom assistive technology? How to make assistive technology moreavailable for people with learning disabilitiesat school, work, or at home?
  6. 6.  Learning disability Assistance Technology Benefits of assistance technology
  7. 7.  Database-specific subject headings andkeywords representing the core concepts ofAssistive Technology for learning disabilities. Studies were limited to the English language
  8. 8.  Studies were identified by searching thefollowing e-databases:1. ERIC2. Google Scholar Reference lists of relevant studies were alsoscanned
  9. 9.  Keywords Assistive Technologies (any technology tohelp students with learning disabilities) Mobile technology (for people with learningdisabilities) Learning Disabilities ( all ages) Assistive Technology (Postsecondaryeducation)
  10. 10.  140 citations were retrieved, results from all databases werecombined and duplicates removed. After scanning these articles (title and abstract) a total of 35articles were found to be related to the topic. 35 articles met the following inclusions/exclusion criteria1. Assistive technology: assessed the use of assistivetechnologyWith people with LD2. Type of interventions: any intervention using assistivetechnology
  11. 11.  A total of 35 articles were found to be closerelated my the topic Technologies Ipad apps Eric database charge for most of the articles
  12. 12.  Assistive technology Benefits for people with Learning Disability
