Young Children

Assistive Technology must be play-based and appealing for young children. Appropriate assistive technology supports encourage children to explore and participate in literature, and use their imagination. Assistive technology may support their mobility and provide access to materials. Visual supports help them to understand what comes next or the steps in an activity. These supports must never take the place of engaging activities but should enhance participation and understanding. The following materials were created as examples of how supports could be added to normally occurring activities to enhance the participation of young children.
