Abstract

The iPad, along with other tablet based computing devices, has the potential to change the lives of students with cognitive impairments (CI) by allowing them the opportunity to communicate, access vital information, and facilitate the routine of daily life. When utilized to accomplish these tasks, iPads can be considered assistive technology (AT), and can thus be written into students’ Individualized Education Plans (IEPs). This research project will examine how the iPad meets the definition of assistive technology, how it reflects current theory of universal design for learning, and how it may be used to meet the needs of students with CI in accordance with their IEP goals. Directions for future research will be presented.
