Webinar Wednesday: Redefining Assistive Technology

Chris Bugaj (@attipscast), host of the A.T.TIPSCAST podcast, shares his thoughts regarding challenges with the current definition of an assistive technology device and proposes a new way to define the term. This is a topic discussed frequently amongst those working in the assistive technology field, as it is commonly agreed upon that using the term "assistive" in front of technology only draws more attention towards the disability, and not towards the notion that the technology is instead leveling the educational playing field for the child.
