Chalk Talk: The Importance of Assistive Technology
Every student has a weakness. Some weaknesses may stem from slight to severe learning and physical disabilities. While each student differs in his or her needs, laws mandate that schools provide students with assistive technologies. These technologies can range from no- and low-technologies, to mid- and high-technologies. Some no- and low-technologies include pencil grips, organizing tools, and nonslip placements for desktops. Mid-technologies, such as audio and visual recorders, calculators, and stopwatches can assist students in many ways. Students who need high-technology devices may have access to electronic communication boards that speak for the child or voice-recognition computer programs that help students create documents without typing. Regardless of the need, all students should have access to any assistive technology. Even students who are not labeled with a disability should utilize tools to serve their academic needs. Together, parents, teachers, and community members can help to raise awareness of the importance of tools to help students perform at their highest capabilities.
