Assistive Technology: Access for All Students

Assistive Technology: Access for All Students Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For courses in Assistive Technology, and Technology in Special Education.

 

Organized around the theme of universal design, this core or supplementary text discusses the knowledge and skills educators need to know in order to determine the appropriate use of technology and services to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities.

 

The second edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the most recent AT beneficial to students requiring such special accommodations, including the most recent links to websites of current AT devices, and software for both pre-service and in-service teachers to use in the classroom. A new chapter that will focus on Universal Design for Learning and Response to Intervention has been added, demonstrating how to combine the two techniques to provide students with access to the general education curriculum. Additional new content includes more on ethics and assistive technology use for consideration of all students, new chapter introductions, questions for reflection, end-of-chapter review material, and extended coverage of diversity related to assistive technology and the classroom. Designed to provide useful information and strategies for candidates in teacher education programs and those practicing educators, the text is also written to provide any interested individuals with a useful background in the application of Assistive Technology in various types of settings.

 

NEW! Chapter on Universal Design for Learning and Response to Intervention focuses on how universal design for learning can be utilized in the Response to Intervention Process, and provides readers with more access to the general education curriculum.

Book News Annotation:

Using case studies to make vivid the disabilities of students and strategies for creating an optimum teaching environment for them, this superb textbook offers detailed instruction to instructors and graduate students on teaching using assistive technologies. New to the second edition is updated information on legal requirements, a new chapter on the requirements of Universal Design for Learning and Response to Intervention, a section on ethical standards of practice, and updated information throughout when discussing the latest technology. The text is practical in tone and systematic in its presentation, with frequent inset boxes filled with resources, sidebars with study questions and links to the book's online feature, and chapter reviews at the conclusion of each chapter. Beard teaches at Jacksonville State U. His co-authors are Laura Bowden Carpenter (Auburn U. at Montgomery) and Linda B. Johnston (the U. of Tennessee at Chattanooga).
