Assistive Technology:According to the United States Assistive Technology Act of 1998, assistive technology refers to any product, device, or equipment, whether acquired commercially, modified or customized, that is used to maintain, increase, or improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities.

Examples:

Hearing Impaired

Learning Disabled

Hearing Assistve Technology is technology that can help students in various listening situations. (i.e. alternative listening device, hearing aids)

Students with visual impairments can complete homework, do research, take tests, and read books along with their sighted classmates, thanks to assistive technology.

Computers and handheld devices can be useful for students with learning disabilities because they cut out distractions, decrease stress of stimuli and leave more of the student's brain for thinking.

Assistive Technology consists of devices that can help physically disabled children funtion as independently as possible. (i.e. wheelchairs and grips for writing)
