Assistive Technology to Support Learning for All Students

Students with special educational needs will often access assistive technologies to support their learning. These technologies may include text-to-speech, screen magnifiers, word prediction, voice-to-text, etc.

In a recently published article, Dr. Kimberly Maich (Brock University) and I argue that these technologies can support learning for all students in inclusive classrooms. The article also provides a short description of some of the most popular assistive technologies such as Dragon Naturally Speaking, Kurzweil, and WordQ.
