From Brookes Publishing
Assistive technology (AT) can help young children with disabilities fully participate in natural, inclusive learning environments, but many early childhood professionals don't get the training they need to harness the power of AT. Fill that gap with this reader-friendly resource, the go-to guide to AT practice for children aged birth to 5.
Developed by two leading early childhood specialists with expertise in assistive technology, this book demystifies AT and gives readers solutions they can implement right away. SLPs and other professionals will
• assess children’s AT needs
• choose from high- and low-tech strategies, from photo albums and page fluffers to touchscreens and adaptive software
• use AT to support development of critical skills; communication, play, literacy, and computer use
• use AT to aid implementation of universal design for learning
• embed AT into activity-based intervention
• involve family members in all phases of AT service delivery
• support communication, language development, and early literacy skills
A CD-ROM contains in-depth, printable forms for evaluating children's AT needs, determining which AT strategies to use, and creating individualized AT "toolkits" that help children meet developmental goals.
