Assistive technology in Teaching students with vision problem

1,203 views

Published on

Students with visual learning disorder have to face the biggest challenge of “printed materials” inside and outside the school. The modern development in science has given birth to Assistive Technology that is helping in designing, developing and improving assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities and disorders. The use of Assistive Technology, in Learning-Related Vision Problems, can help such students to improve their performance and use their learning potential more efficiently.
