Abstract

Assistive technologies are part of the larger academic support network available to all students in most postsecondary settings – a model that many secondary schools have yet to adopt. To survive in college, learning disabled (LD) students should be exposed to modern technologies throughout their secondary school careers. Today, college students use smart phones, laptops, tablets, mp3 players, e-readers, Web 2.0 technologies, software, course content systems, apps, Internet, virtual games, and social networks, and are intensely information literate. LD students must arrive at college ready to use these new technologies as well as others to accommodate their special needs. This research explores some of these technologies as well as Web 2.0 skills and the “cloud,” newer tools that offer exceptional possibilities for LD students. School districts must provide the quality transition programming, including technologies, to which the disabled are entitled.
