WHAT IS ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY ?

Assistive Technology is any product, equipment, or system that enhances learning, working, or living for individuals with disabilities (ATiA, https://www.atia.org/home/at-resources/what-is-at/). Assistive technology in the classroom can be physical equipment in the learning environment (high tech, low tech, and even no tech) but it can also describe the services that students are provided to increase their access learning materials, their ability to express themselves, or their engagement in lessons.
