Assistive technology helps students with disabilities to do things they cannot do, or to do them better. It is sometimes called 'specialised equipment' or 'assistive equipment'.

It can include technology devices such as computer hardware and software as well as vision equipment, specialised seating, tables and hearing devices.

"I decided to use the oral accounts because I am painfully dyslexic. And when I was growing up, audio books were the only way I could study. And one audio book that I listened to just for pleasure was Studs Terkel's The Good War, and that book never left me. And I wanted that to be the template for describing a global crisis, because I thought an oral history is a great way to bring in so many voices, literally, from all around the world."

Our dyslexic son finds it hard to finish reading novels. I'd like for him to read this one.
