Assistive Technology Consultations are available to help you pick the right device or applications for your child.
Assistive technology is any tool that helps students with disabilities do things more quickly, easily or independently. Assistive Technology may be considered for any student who has an IEP or Section 504 Service Agreement in the school setting. However, students entering high school or college may benefit from a consultation to identify types of technology that might help them in school be more independent or access their curriculum in an easier way. Technology helps students with disabilities on many different levels. It can help them accomplish tasks for example: improve note-taking skills, help with reading skills and spelling. There are a variety of Low tech, Mid-tech and High tech devices that might be helpful for those who have difficulty taking notes, spelling, organizing their work, etc. A consultation with Debra George may be helpful to assist you in understanding technology options that are available.
