Appropriate accommodations can include the use of assistive technology devices.Thirty years ago, fewer than 100 such devices were commercially available. Today, more than 29,000 assistive technology' devices exist for individuals with disabilities and for aging adults (Bausch & Hasselbring, 2004), Too often, people think of these devices in temis of expensive laptop computers and sophisticated software.

With the passage of landmark federal laws, equal access to technology for all students, regardless of their abilities, has been getting increasing attention in the field of education. Although considering a continuum of assistive technology (AT) items and services for individuals with disabilities is a mandated practice, education and rehabilitation professionals are faced with challenges of providing effective AT service delivery due to lack of clear legal and practical guidelines.

Assistive technology is guaranteed by law to be included when appropriate on individualized education plans (IEP) for young children with disabilities. Yet, the full potential of technology remains unfulfilled due to insufficient knowledge of options available, limited professional development, and a dearth of evidence on its effectiveness for particular daily routines and activities. This article describes a proactive strategy for meeting the needs of young children with disabilities through an assistive technology toolkit approach.

Despite the emphasis on technology and the rapid proliferation of assistive technology devices, little is known about the specific uses of assistive technology with persons who vary in disability type, severity, and age. The present study conducted a comprehensive review and a systematic analysis of published reports of assistive technology and skill acquisition of persons with disabilities. Uses of assistive technology, its benefits and obstacles, are reviewed. The results provide indications why technology is often abandoned.
