The purpose of this paper is to show the uses of Assitive Technology (AT) as an educational tool, and to highlight a few devices that can be used in the areas of Reading, Writing, and Math for students with learning disabilities. Through the use of low-tech and high-tech devices, AT will be able to help students become better readers, writers, and mathematicians. In the area of Reading, the use of AT will help students improve upon and build on their spelling abilities, and also better students’ decoding, listening, and oral skills. In the area of Writing, the use of AT will enable students to write neatly and legibly, to form letters correctly, and to write sentences that are grammatically correct. In the area of Math, the use of AT will enable students to be able to make proper calculations and computations.
