Interactive whiteboards: An assistive technology tool for students with LDs, written by Cindy Perras, is a great article appearing on the Learning Disabilities Association of Ontario (LDAO)  site, posted Feb 18 2016. .

Her articles begins ” Assistive technology (AT) can be of tremendous benefit to students with learning disabilities (LDs); AT can compensate for a student’s skills deficits, needs and/or area(s) of disability. The key to effective AT is finding the right match between the AT tool, the learning disabilities, and the task. Students with LDs will most often require AT that assists with reading, language, organizational skills and processing information. Examples of AT include computers, mobile technology (tablets, smartphones, iPods, etc.), specialized software programs, scanners, and interactive whiteboards.”

The article includes:

  • information about UDL, key features of Smart boards, strategies specific to different LDs
  • links to other articles, videos

And a resource list that includes the following 2 items:

Ontario.  Ministry of Education. (Feb 2014).  Assistive Technology Tools. What works? Research Into Practice. Research Monograph #50.

Dunn, A., & Inglis, A. (Dec. 2010/Jan. 2011). Smart Inclusion for the 21st century classroom: Integrating SMART boards with assistive technology. Retrieved from  http://www.vocalinks.com/site/vocalinks/assets/pdf/closing_the_gap-smart_inclusion_for_the_21st_century_classroom.pdf
