Abstract

This article describes possibilities for technology use among students with mild disabilities. It considers characteristics of assistive technology from the standpoint of strategies associated with universal design for learning and Type I and Type II software applications. After a brief description of assistive technology definitions, legislation, and implementation issues, the assistive technology toolkit, an alternative strategy for equipping students with technology for classroom use, is presented. Observations from field-testing indicate that general and special education teachers can effectively use the toolkit to integrate general curriculum requirements for students with mild disabilities.
