Compendium of Assistive Technologies, 2018

In 2010-11, Simcoe/Muskoka Literacy Network (SMLN) identified a need for a consolidated list of assistive technology to help people with learning and other challenges that may affect their learning.  Through field support funding from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, we researched and complied the first version of this compendium, which was targeted to adult educators.

In 2018, we determined it was time to update this resource, as there have been significant developments in some areas of assistive technology.  Some assistive technology has become very mainstream and is used in personal computers and mobile devices.  Many of the items we’ve included are free or low in cost, but more costly options are also included, to give you a complete overview of available products.
