There are thousands of assistive technology (AT) supports that might assist a student to access, participate, and become more independent in a variety of school activities and tasks including both low- and high-tech options. The following is a chart that can help frame the various student needs that might warrant consideration and application of AT. The examples provided are just a small sampling of AT supports that are available within these domains. This chart is not intended to be an exhaustive list of possible solutions and should not be used as a way to select AT for a specific student.
