Assistive Technology Tools

I know I refer to Schwab Learning a lot on this blog, but it's for a good reason. They have such a comprehensive data base of information on every topic you could think of relating to ADHD and LD. They have a ton of useful, relevant information that I just have to pass on.

The latest article I have found that I want to share is entitled Technology to Help Kids:Assistive Technology Tools. It's really more of a data base than an article. You choose your child's learning difficulty from a drop down menu and up pops assistive technology tools/products relating to that particular learning problem. It just couldn't be easier. Click on the tool/product you're interested in a you are automatically taken to a website that has, sells or offers that tool.

There is also a drop down menu if you prefer to search by tool/product. For example, if you are interested in talking calculators, just click on that tool and a list of resources pops up. You can then follow those links to learn more about the calculators and find out where to purchase one.

If your child is struggling with listening, math, reading, writing, organization and/or memory, this site can lead you to the very tool that could help your child succeed.


  1. hello, i just found you through Angel in South Africa. Matt and I have posted some of our ADD/ ADHD tales on a blog called "great minds" do have a look.
    nice to meet you, the info here looks great. God bless you for what you are doing

  2. Thank you for this post. A very useful tool, but I can't help but think about the poor parent out there who doesn't have their child quite fall into any of these categories. A very confusing world.


  3. My son has ADHD. We have just started him on Synaptol this morning. And it was great improvement.
