Assistive Technology Is Not for the Weak!

Phrases I hear too often… “I hope I’ll never need Assistive Technology (AT).” “I don’t need AT because someone else does that task for me.” “I could use AT, but I won’t because it will make me stick-out from the crowd.” These perceptions of Assistive Technology hold people back. And guess what? If you plan to live well […]

Here is the update.  In addition to reading short text immediately, scanning and dictating a […]

What Do You Do with an App Like Due?

I heard about the Due App from a buzz surrounding the Assistive Technology (AT) community. When something trends in our quirky group of professionals, you know it must be good. One trip to the App Store and 4 dollars and 99 cents later I had the app in hand and was eager with anticipation to […]
