Curriculum and Environmental Access Using Assistive Technology
The adaptive use of electronic or computer-related devices and methods by pupils with a physical disability has been a proven method of accessing the curriculum and recording students work at Fleming Fulton School for several years. For example mini keyboards can be used by people with limited hand movement to enter text into a computer.
Assistive technology can also be used to assist students who have difficulty accessing their environment using conventional methods. Infrared switches can be programmed to control interior doors, and turn on and off most electrical devices simply. For example a child’s CD player.
