Summary

With an emphasis on theintegration of assistive technology into the curriculum, this text focuses on how assistive technology can be used in schools to enhance the teaching and learning of students with disabilities. This link between technology and teaching and learning drives the bookrs"s organization as well as its content. It is organized byschool-related tasksthat students must perform on a daily basis to be successful -- reading, writing, practicing academic skills, and communicating with their teachers and peers and presents descriptions of technology-based solutions to the obstacles students with disabilities face in completing these tasks. Since being able to access computers is one major barrier, the text features a section on making computers accessible to students with a wide range of disabilities. A companion web site offers up-to-date information on product names, vendors, web site addresses, and other time-sensitive material.
