A comprehensive article with many resources. Assistive Technology, often overlapping with educational technology, certainly is supporting ALL students universally in education, as well as adult individuals to access employment, the community, and daily living activities. High tech options or low tech options, modifications, and so many free and low cost options available for leveling the playing field and supporting access in all environments.

I can see this being a better fit for transitioning from the PODD book to the iPad than P2G. However, the cost is prohibitive for our family. It would be nice to see an app that would NOT need you purchase the expensive grid 2 in addition to the PODD software.
