People will often ask us for our opinion on different products- our answer is usually "it depends." Sounds like a cop out, but really, it's true-- there are pros and cons to each of them, depending on what you are trying to do.
TechMatrix Logo- AT Tools and Resources for Learning
TechMatrix(www.techmatrix.org) is an online database that helps you compare products yourself! If you knew of them from a few years ago, you'll be happy to know that they've updated the site. You can now use theTechMatrixto search for resources and technology tools that support student learning in math, reading, writing, and science, matched to IDEA disability category, grade level (including transition), your role, accessibility features, and more.
One example is comparing technology that supports reading. Under Hot Topics, you will find Reading for Struggling Students. There are lots of informative articles, and you can use their Custom Searches link to help you get started in searching their online database of products.
We think this is a great way to start exploring. If you need more individualized assistance, talk to us about AT consults or evaluations to help find the right solution for you. See our website, www.assistivetechnologycenter.org, for more information.
