A longitudinal case study on the use of assistive technology to support cognitive processesHandbook of Research on Human Cognition and Assistive Technology: Design, Accessibility and Transdisciplinary Perspectives (2010)
This chapter describes a chronology of increasingly sophisticated technological supports and interventions used across complex formal and informal educational settings with a 10th grade female student who has documented learning challenges. A progression from low technology devices to computerized, high technology assistive devices are employed to provide access to materials and to academic information over a period of 10 years. Understanding both the inner and outer context of this learner’s environment provides the reader with a background to process the progression of the use, improvement, and availability of assistive technology in the life of this user.
