However, many technology resources standard to most computer classrooms - word processing, Internet use, Power Point, and other types of multimedia - may benefit SLD students with only slight modifications.Unfortunately these technologies are too rarely evaluated for how they might help "individuals with learning disabilities to compensate for specific cognitive deficits" (Day and Edwards).But the real frustration came when I was grading research papers. When measuring ideas, Albert was a genius, or at least he had the potential to excel.One paper clearly stood out from the others: it was clear and artfully written, filled with specific support for a provocative idea. When measuring his academic abilities - the abilities to interpret assignments or negotiate the mechanics of college - Albert was incompetent. I think he had the potential to learn more in my class than he did, but the standard practices of education didnt work for him.About ten minutes late, Albert runs into the computer lab seemingly dazed.

These students can learn, and can excel in academics.
The appropriate selection of assistive technology within the home can make a significant difference to a person’s activity levels and encourage them to remain in their home for longer.
