Assistive Technology ranges from low tech to high tech devices or equipment.ssistive technology is used to facilitate academic skill development and to enable students to fully access the educational program.

.Low tech ATare devices or equipment that don't require much training, may be less expensive and do not have complex or mechanical features.For example:handheld magnifierslarge print textusing paper and pen to communicatecanes or walkersthings that can reach items/grabspecialized pen or pencil grips and much moreAT devices or equipment that range in the middle of the continuummay have some complex features, may be electronic or battery operated, may require some training to learn how to use and are more expensive than the lowtech devices
