Overview

Connecting to Learn: Educational and Assistive Technology for People With Disabilities presents a comprehensive approach to matching the right assistive technology with students with disabilities, especially visual and auditory disabilities. Dr. Scherer explores the way disabilities, especially those involving the senses, can lead to isolation and a lack of "connectedness," and how this leads to educational difficulties. She then provides a step-by-step model for assessing and evaluating the needs of individual students and finding the right assistive technology to help each student. This practical book features data on prevalence of vision and hearing loss as well as quotations from students and teachers about the various technologies they use in their schools and in daily life. School psychologists, educators, and rehabilitation psychologists will find this book indispensable in their efforts to help those with disabilities learn, live, and connect with others.

    No other book puts it all together like this one does!

    No other text covers as well the unique learner, relevant technologies, and education -- certainly not in one great-to-read complete package. The author is a psychologist, assessment and evaluation specialist, educator, techie and a person with a heart to boot. The personal stories bring the 'lessons' to life.
