dc.description Project (M.S., Counseling (Vocational Rehabilitation))--California State University, Sacramento, 2014. en
dc.description.abstract By law, students with learning disabilities (LDs) entering higher education institutions are eligible for reasonable accommodations with the intent to provide an equal playing field to education and participation in a school’s program. Assistive technology (AT) is an accommodation that has been effective in helping students with LDs overcome academic deficits. Despite federal laws, access to AT is still challenging for many students with LDs as they encounter barriers. Currently, there are no resource guides on mainstream technologies that are comparable to AT, or technology-based tools intended for students with learning disabilities in higher education. The purpose of this project was to help students with LDs overcome barriers to AT access by providing information on mainstream technologies that can enhance and personalize learning and productivity. The resources obtained for this project originated from peer-reviewed journal articles, learning disability organizations’ websites, and books pertaining to AT and learning strategies. Additionally, the author had personal communication with relevant staff and students with LDs in higher education. With the current state of technology, mainstream technologies with similar features of AT utilized by students with LDs are easily accessible and affordable. Therefore, a resource guide was created in hopes of removing barriers to AT access. A second resource guide was also created to provide supplemental technology-based tools that can enhance and personalize learning and productivity for students with LDs. en
