About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. Assistive technologies have the potential to meet a range of simple to complex needs for individuals with additional needs, and boost an individual’s participation, communication, learning outcomes and quality of life. As such, professionals must develop both knowledge and skill in identifying and embedding appropriate technology into the assessment, goal-setting, teaching and evaluation cycle. Emphasis will be placed on demonstrating deep knowledge of the literature and demonstrating skills in assessment and instructional practices employing technology to support learning, communication, curricular, and instructional access either in a learning or natural setting. Students will be expected to critically examine the educational function and efficacy of communication technology, assistive technology, digital and multimedia text, or educational software.
