Although the world of Assistive Technology
ranges from wheelchairs to corrective eyeglasses, Mada specialises in the area of connecting people with disabilities to the information and communication technology.
As practice in telerehabilitation and assistive technology
developed in scope and effectiveness over the past few years, it has become evident to clinicians and users that focusing on the technology alone is generally not enough for efficacious results.
Additionally, research on assistive technology
contends that individuals with disabilities without support are typically less successful than those who have it.
Technology is not new in this part of the world but the focus on assistive technology
The first section addressed basic demographic characteristics, including age, gender, geographic location, years of teaching, years of working with students with visual impairments, type of teaching assignment (such as itinerant teaching), and type of certification (for example, teaching students with visual impairments and orientation and mobility), and whether the participants themselves had visual impairments and used assistive technology
I loved this book for demystifying assistive technology
a survey of K-12 school district technology leaders and special education directors to identify common accessibility and assistive technology
issues and/or problems
to use in the workplace for wounded servicemembers who remain on active duty or transition to a federal government position
Rehabilitation counselors need to be familiar with computer assistive technology
(CAT) as consumers are receiving increased benefits with the help of technology.
In 1997, Congress passed a law mandating that assistive technology
be considered for every student who receives special education services.
Adam Krass, assistive technology
specialist, says roughly 100 of about 500 special needs students in K-12 have learning disabilities and use various technological tools, such as eBeam's whiteboard technology.
I have just had the opportunity to tour the department's assistive technology
center, and I saw technologies that are helping people with disabilities enjoy the full range of opportunities made possible by the technology boom.
