dc.description.abstractStudents with varying ranges of disabilities are accessing communication skills and technology in a completely new way. Students who were unable to convey basic needs, ideas, feelings, sentiments, and wants can now communicate these ideas by using multiple mediums and technology such as tablets, laptops, and cellular devices. There were three goals, which were achieved by the completion of this project. First, it was an analysis of assistive technology in its past and present forms, including its evolution to portable devices and the challenges that the move created. Second, it was an investigation into the ways that AAC devices are assessed. The last goal and overall purpose was to create a criteria based checklist that school districts and educational professionals might use to evaluate technological applications that may be used with individuals with disabilities that limit communication.en_US
