Assistive technology tools have always been meant for students with learning disabilities but there is documented proof these tools can benefit all students. Assistive technology enables students with disabilities to compensate for the impairments they experience. This specialized technology promotes independence and decreases the need for other educational support. Appropriate assistive technology can help people with disabilities overcome or compensate, at least in part, for their limitations. It also benefits everyone who interacts with users of the technology, as it increases opportunities for participation for all users involved. Below are a few types of assistive technologies.

Exergaming– Exergame can definitely be used as an assistive technology. Exergaming can promote academic success and increase self-esteem. It can also be used with students with special needs like Autism, ADD, and ADHD. Schools that used Exergame equipment for their students have observed that they’re more focused and motivated to learn.

Other options

Screen readers-this is software used by blind or visually impaired people to read the content on the computer screen.

Text readers– software used by people with various forms of learning disabilities that affect their ability to read text. This software will read text with a synthesized voice and may have a highlighter to emphasize the word being spoken.

Assistive technology is designed to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of children with disabilities. It enables individuals to be more independent, self-confident, and more productive in everyday life.
