Assistive Technology (SEND)

The use of technology to enhance learning is an effective approach for many children. Additionally, students with special education needs often experience greater success when they are allowed to use their abilities (strengths) to work around their disabilities (challenges). Assistive technology combines the best of both of these practices.

The term 'assistive technology' refers to any device or system that allows an individual to perform a task that they would otherwise be unable to do, or increases the ease and safety with which the task can be performed.
