Making Technology Inclusive

Science and Children Volume 41, Number 3, ISSN 0036-8148


Assistive Technology (AT) helps a person with a physical, cognitive, learning, or speech disability perform tasks that would otherwise be difficult or impossible. There are hundreds of specialized AT devices on the market, but their price tags often prevent their use in elementary science classrooms. Fortunately, affordable technologies “are” available to help students with disabilities gain equal access when it comes to computer use in science education. This article describes some of the many options available. (Contains 1 figure and 1 resource.)
