Tools for Life!
Georgia Assistive Technology Project (Tools for Life), directed by Christopher Lee is a website that special educators can refer to for guidance in the areas of assistive technology and how it applies to making education accessible to students with learning disabilities. The Tools for Learning page has several tabs that discuss various signs of learning disabilities in the areas of reading, writing, math, and social skills. In addition, there is an assistive technology tab that provides information on how to address needs triggered by various learning disabilities. This website will be of particular use for me in my current setting as I continue to learn how to best accommodate junior high students with learning disabilities through assistive technology as well as informing parents/guardians of students with learning disabilities of helpful resources. http://www.gatfl.org/LearningDisabilitiesGuide/tabid/456/Default.aspx
