Fact Sheet: The Adult with Learning Disabilities and Assistive Technology (2011)

The authors begin by explaining that assistive technology refers to any piece of equipment, product or system that directly assists, maintains, or improves the functional capabilities of people with learning disabilities.

They give examples of assistive technology that can help overcome difficulties with reading, writing, mathematics and organizational tasks. For example, problems with reading can be overcome with audio books while a computer with a good word processor can overcome problems with handwriting.

The authors note that assistive technology ranges from high-tech, sophisticated electronic devices to such low-tech helpers as sticky notes, chart systems, calendars and check lists.
