It further discusses AT in relation to transitioning, distance learning, and the ethical standards of practice. The new edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the most recent AT beneficial to students requiring such special accommodations, including links to websites of current AT devices, and software for use in the classroom, and a new chapter on Universal Design for Learning and Response to Intervention and how to combine the two techniques to provide students with access to the general education curriculum. This edition also features more on ethics and assistive technology use for consideration of all students, new chapter introductions, questions for reflection, end-of-chapter review material, and extended coverage of diversity related to assistive technology and the classroom.
