Using the Assistive Technology Plan template, you will create an assistive technology plan for a student with a high incident disability (learning disability, emotional behavior disorder, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder, or other health impairment). In the chart, identify a learner with a high incident disability to create an assistive technology plan. In your plan, you will identify the learner, the disability, and grade level.
In two to three paragraphs, you will discuss the characteristics of the student including educational strengths and areas of needs (academic, communication, social, environmental and curricular access, etc.), family involvement, classroom challenges or concerns, existing supports, and other pertinent information about the student. You can either use an existing or fictitious student.
Based on the discussion of the student’s needs and disability, identify at least five areas of need related to materials and teaching methods in the classroom or learning environment, discuss potential barriers or missed opportunities, and then discuss at least two possible solutions to address each area of need. Your solutions must be research-based and should be cited within the chart. You must use a minimum of two peer-reviewed sources to substantiate your AT solutions. APA format is required for the title page, reference page, and all in-text citations.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
