Why do you need this text? Differentiation, universal design, and inclusion- these educational concepts depicting today's classroom are here to stay. What does the average teacher do to make sure that their students receive the best education? Where should a teacher turn to have a quick reference check for the usage of assistive technology? This text provides exciting new ideas in the world of assistive technology and gives us the confidence in knowing that it is constantly being explored to best serve our students. Our children are the most important asset this world has. They are our purpose. The text Assistive Technology provides an avenue where all children regardless of disabilities or handicapped will have an equal chance to receive the best possible education our village can provide. Regular and special education teachers, reading specialized, social workers, physiotherapists, speech pathologist, and parents... need to read this book. (Carol Williams, M.A., Principal, Toronto District Separate School board. Ontario, Canada) Assistive Technology is an essential text for those who teach -- or aspire to teach -- children with special needs. Special Education laws mandate that schools consider each student's need for assistive technology devices and/or services during the IEP process. The vastness of the information presented by Professors Sze and Cowden may be readily adapted to the particular needs of students in elementary and secondary schools. (J.C. Blokhuis, Ph.D., LL.B., Senior Lecturer, Roehampton University, London, UK)

The Advances in Special Education Technology series is designed to focus international attention on applications of technology for individuals with disabilities. Outstanding researchers from around the world will contribute chapters synthesizing the research evidence on specific types of technology applications that improve access, engagement, and learning outcomes of diverse learners. The scope of contributions will cover subfields known as assistive technology, instructional design, instructional technology, online learning, personalized learning, and universal design for learning and will encompass both formal and informal learning settings across the lifespan. Instructional designers often fail to consider issues of accessibility when creating educational materials. As a result, students with disabilities frequently encounter physical, sensory, or cognitive barriers that prevent them from accessing, engaging, and succeeding in learning activities. This volume will examine issues of accessibility and how designers can improve the quality of educational materials by embedding supports that anticipate the special learning needs of diverse learners.

LEGO Chain Reactions is packed full of ideas, instructions, and inspiration for 10 LEGO machines that spin, swing, pivot, roll, lift, and drop. Each machine alone is awesome, but put them together and you get incredible chain reactions. Then, combine the machines in any order you like to create your own chain reactions. Our team of experts worked with educators and 11-year-olds to invent the machines, then wrote a book that teaches the skills (and some of the physics behind the fun) kids need to create their own amazing chain reaction machines.

Our book includes 33 special LEGO elements that combine with basic bricks from your collection to make your machines go. But don’t worry that you won’t have the right bricks; we worked with the folks at LEGO to make sure you’ll need only the most common bricks, and that there are plenty of substitutes. The result is a chain reaction of fun, as one thing leads to another… and another… and another.

Comes with: 78 page book, 33 LEGO elements, 6 LEGO balls, 6 feet of string, 8 paper ramps, 2 paper pop-up signs, 1 paper funnel ramp, 1 paper flag, 1 paper bucket, 1 platform
