The integration of assistive technology within the daily educational environment
A descriptive study was implemented to determine teachers' perception and the prevalence of factors that may influence the integration of assistive technology within the classroom of an urban school district. The study utilized a survey design to collect data from the teachers. Results from the study indicated that within this school district optimum factors existed within the classroom to support the integration of assistive technology and teachers had an overall positive perception regarding the use of AT. However, teachers reported less training with communication based devices and almost one third reported insufficient in-class assistance to support technology use.
