Why do you need this text? Differentiation, universal design, and inclusion- these educational concepts depicting today's classroom are here to stay. What does the average teacher do to make sure that their students receive the best education? Where should a teacher turn to have a quick reference check for the usage of assistive technology? This text provides exciting new ideas in the world of assistive technology and gives us the confidence in knowing that it is constantly being explored to best serve our students. Our children are the most important asset this world has. They are our purpose. The text Assistive Technology provides an avenue where all children regardless of disabilities or handicapped will have an equal chance to receive the best possible education our village can provide. Regular and special education teachers, reading specialized, social workers, physiotherapists, speech pathologist, and parents... need to read this book. (Carol Williams, M.A., Principal, Toronto District Separate School board. Ontario, Canada) Assistive Technology is an essential text for those who teach -- or aspire to teach -- children with special needs. Special Education laws mandate that schools consider each student's need for assistive technology devices and/or services during the IEP process. The vastness of the information presented by Professors Sze and Cowden may be readily adapted to the particular needs of students in elementary and secondary schools. (J.C. Blokhuis, Ph.D., LL.B., Senior Lecturer, Roehampton University, London, UK)
