WHAT IS ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY?


Assistive technology (AT) is any device, piece of equipment or system that helps someone do something more effectively or efficiently.  For individuals with Dyslexia and other learning differences AT could help overcome issues they may encounter in the classroom, such as reading, spelling or unreadable handwriting.  For these individuals AT tools can provide the support they need to be able to demonstrate their knowledge in ways that weren't previously possible.
