Assistive technology (AT) includes adaptive and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities. AT can provide independence by enabling individuals to perform tasks that they were formerly unable to accomplish.
The Virginia Assistive Technology Project goal is to increase access to the general education curriculum for students with disabilities through the use of assistive technology. The project supports the accommodations and modifications that are necessary for students with disabilities to master curricular objectives and to participate in statewide assessments. Tools and training are available at Virginia Assistive Technology Project Website.
