Assistive Technology is an umbrella term that includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for persons with disabilities as well as the process used in selecting, trialing and implementing them.
Assistive Technology is more specialized and often more complex technology than educational
technology in that it allows physical and cognitive access to learning for students/children who have
barriers due to their disabilities.
All students identified with extraordinary needs require access to assistive technology (devices
and services) to make learning accessible and to demonstrate understanding. AT reduces barriers inherent in the environment.
