Module 3- use of assistive technology

In a school or library setting, accommodations of many different learning needs should be met, including all types of disabilities.  Assistive technology that could be implemented in a school setting should include alternative input and output devices such as screen reading and enlargement software, Braille translation tools, and access to TDD.  Those with learning disabilities could gain much use from word prediction software, reading and writing comprehension programs, and grammar and spell checkers.  Reading machines and software, as well as note taking devices, and mouse and keyboard options could also be useful additions to the school setting and would also accommodate different needs of the learner.
