  • March 7, 2016: Free and Low Cost Assistive Technology

    With the Assistive Technology market booming, and budgets getting tighter and tighter in higher education and K-12, free and low cost assistive technology options are becoming a more mainstream option. However, with the sheer number of these tools being able to support students with a variety of needs, how does one stay abreast of the constant developments, updates, and new features? Participants of this session will learn about approximately a dozen of the latest and greatest programs, apps, and extensions that support student learners; all costing less than roughly $10. Topic areas include literacy support, writing support, notetaking and organization/task management. Having a toolbox of free and low cost assistive technology, such as these tools, is an asset to any AT program.
