Assistive Technology

Comm ArtAssistive Technology is technology used by individuals with disabilities in order to perform functions that might otherwise be difficult or impossible. Assistive technology can include mobility devices such as walkers and wheelchairs, as well as hardware, software, and peripherals that assist people with disabilities in accessing computers or other information technologies. For example, people with limited hand function may use a keyboard with large keys or a special mouse to operate a computer, people with low vision may use software that enlarges screen content, or people with speech/language impairments may use a device that speaks out loud as they enter text via a keyboard or access pictures that correspond to language. Students at CCSS access language, content curriculum and environmental control through various Assistive Technology Devices. Teachers and staff are constantly striving to find the best device to meet the individual needs of each student.
