Technology Integration: Integrating Assistive Technology Into the General Curriculum for Students With Physical DisabilitiesBy Hartsell, Kim; Kemph, Sally; Closing the Gap, Vol. 24, No. 5, pp. 4-6
Publication Date: January 2006
Article addresses the types of assistive technology solutions available for students with disabilities, and focuses on the integration of these devices into classroom instructional activities. Students with physical disabilities who are enrolled in the general educational curriculum use a variety of low and high technology tools to support their success in academic areas such as reading, writing, spelling, math, and study/organizational skills. For example, students who have difficulty understanding standard print instructional materials or have difficulty in physically handling other instructional materials can access text via audio books, while others can view and read their text on a computer using an advanced reading aid. Sample lesson plans utilizing advanced technology such as talking web browsers, text reading software, and word prediction software are presented.
