Assistive Adaptive Technology

Assistive Technology is an umbrella term that includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities. Assistive technology includes everything from prosthesis and mobility devices to pencil grips and tape recorders. In a post secondary setting, assistive technology usually means computer hardware and computer software which is used to ameliorate the impact of a disability in an academic setting. However, with the growth of online courses and programs, it is important that online courses and programs be accessible and formatted to work with assistive technology.
