Assistive Technology

Assistive technology (AT) refers to any device, software, or equipment that helps people work around their challenges or disabilities, thus enhancing their functional capabilities. The aim of assistive technology is to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities, thereby aiding their independence, productivity, and inclusion in society.

Assistive technology can be applied across various fields and can range from low-tech solutions such as magnifying glasses for individuals with visual impairments, to more high-tech solutions such as speech-to-text software for individuals with dyslexia or mobility impairments.

In the context of education, assistive technology can include tools that support learning, such as text-to-speech software (like Kurzweil 3000), electronic worksheets, phonetic spelling software, variable speed recorders, etc. These tools can support a wide range of learning needs, helping students to engage with educational content in ways that work best for them.
