AT and Learning Disabilities
What are some good LD and AT resources?
Techmatrix - The National Center for Technology Innovation (NCTI) offers a Techmatrix, a "Review of Technology-Based Approaches for Reading Instruction: Tools for Researchers and Vendors." This matrix is intended to serve as a resource that matches technology tools with supporting literature on promising practices for the instruction of reading for students with disabilities. It is organized into the following areas: Mathematics, science, reading, writing, transitioning with technology, differentiating instruction through technology, multimedia, and technology implementation.
The University of Washington’s “Working Together: Computers and People with Learning Disabilities” provides a concise summary of the challenges and tools available to people with learning disabilities.
The University of Washington also offers a twelve-minute video demonstrating key points in this handout. http://www.washington.edu/doit/Video/index.php?vid=29.
