Assistive Technology (AT) can be broadly described as the devices, software, media, and services used by individuals to actively assist them in achieving their goals. Assistive Technology can support an individual to accomplish learning, work productivity, mobility, and other goals.

Assistive Technology tools are beneficial for everyone to utilize. AT is especially helpful for people with learning challenges, as it can help compensate for an individual’s specific learning deficits and capitalize on their strengths.
