Assistive Technology in Special Education Resources to Support Literacy, Communication, and Learning Differences
Assistive Technology in Special Education presents a wealth of practical, well-organized information to help families, teachers, and therapists find effective solutions for students with learning, literacy, and cognitive challenges. This third edition features new affordable tools to improve and compensate for challenges related to speaking, understanding, reading, writing, and thinking and remembering, as well as strategies to help students become more organized and efficient. Also highlighted are iOS devices, G Suite (Google Apps and Extensions), online collaborative sites, and features built into the computers and mobile devices readers already use. As technology changes and new operating systems make older programs obsolete, this book will empower readers to explore the most current resources as they become available.
As technology changes and new operating systems make older programs obsolete, Assistive Technology in Special Education will empower classroom teachers to explore the most current resources as they become available, and will prove to be a critically important addition to professional, school district, college, and university library Teacher Education collections and supplemental studies reading lists.,James A.

I highly recommend this comprehensive yet easy-to-read resource on AT. While technology tools can evolve at a rapid pace, having a core understanding of the potential benefits of digital tools, software, and apps is important for all professionals working to fully support students with learning challenges in communication and literacy.,Carol Willard,MiddleWeb, 6/27/19
