If you aren't too sure of what Assistive Technology (AT) is and want to learn more about the various types of AT, this article is for you! This FREE KDP Record article provides an excellent overview of Assistive Technology and even gives a detailed explanation of the most common types. My favorite aspects are the helpful charts that compare the benefits and concerns of utilizing AT and the advantages and cautions of each AT category. KDP membership is required to access this resource.
