This reference guide is designed to help educators better understand the value of assistive technology (AT) in increasing all students’ access to the general education curriculum and improving the teaching/learning process for students with special needs. Written by Brian Friedlander, the guide shows educators how incorporating assistive technology can help them adhere to the principle of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) by enabling teachers to design lesson plans that include multiple means of representation, expression and engagement. When this is done, access to the curriculum for students with disabilities increases, lessons are more effective, and learning improves. 

Assistive Technology:  What Every Educator Needs to Know answers both the "what" and "how" of assistive technology. It reviews the built-in accessibility features of Windows and OS X (Mac) operating systems, as well as the iOS (iPad), Android, and Chrome (Chromebooks) operating systems. It also recommends and describes specific software/apps for desktop and mobile devices that are designed to help build key skills in the areas of reading, writing, organization, and math.
