4 Videos From The Georgia AT Team Showcase Tech Tools for Reading, Writing, Note-taking, Math

:

Searching for assistive technology solutions? Help is on the way. 

Four Films, Apps Reviews

Four films uploaded in May to the Georgia Assistive Technology YouTube Channel are brimming with tech tools for learning. Find low-tech and high-tech solutions that are proven supports for students who struggle to read, write, take notes, and understand and perform math problems. Follow up with this AT team's app reviews.

Which Assistive Technology Tools Work? 

With so many tools on the market, there is little doubt why finding a "just-right" tool for individual students requires a thoughtful assessment. Once that process is in place, the vetted resources found on the Georgia "Tools for Life AT Program" website can make the job of personalizing learning tools a bit easier. 

In addition to the videos, check the product reviews that comprise the Tools for Life apps database. "Our Favorite Apps" lets teachers and others search by disability or multiple disabilities, as well as by price ranges and device types.

All the resources on this site are said to be used and/ or tested by one or more members of the Tools for Life team, and/or by colleagues from other Assistive Technology (AT) Act Programs, physical, occupational and speech language therapists; AT professionals; people with disabilities and other leaders in the disability community. Hopefully, the resources found here can build knowledge that helps educators make informed purchasing decisions.

Accessible educational materials (AEM) help to create access to the curriculum for students with dyslexia, learning disabilities, vision or physical challenges, and others. A federally funded AEM program in every state assures that books in alternative formats are provided free of charge to eligible students with disabilities whose education teams take action. The AEM program operates under a legal exception to federal copyright law. Check out the AIM-VA home page to learn more about eligibility in Virginia. In other states, contact a special education teacher, a school administrator or download a list of AEM state contacts.External Link to AEM state contacts (New Window).
