Do you have students with disabilities or special needs? Then you may need an assistive technology: a technology used by an individual with a disability to perform a function that might otherwise be difficult or impossible.

Samantha Thomas, a student, future librarian, and educator at Kutztown University, created this handy collection of assistive technologies that you may find helpful. Some are commonly used with special needs individuals, such as augmentative & alternative communication apps like My Pictures Talk, Look2Learn, and iTalk. Others are general consumer apps, such as Evernote, Google Earth, and Audacity. Listed alongside each app is her assessment of its value as an assistive technology.
