Assistive Technology Supports for Early Literacy and Numeracy

Assistive technology (AT) supports can help children acquire skills and knowledge as they participate in the “general curriculum” (IDEA, 2004). The general curriculum for preschool children with disabilities is determined to be the daily routines and activities taking place in the early childhood classroom. Although children grow and develop, they become interested in early literacy and math activities and enjoy interacting with new tools and related materials in their homes and early childhood classrooms. AT supports are available to help them participate in these new activities.
