Due to the varied history of learning among disabled students, educators should ideally develop content tailored to each student’s specific needs. However, in order to accomplish this, educators require easy-to-handle software and hardware for creating original content and aid for students with disabilities in their classes. This title provides emerging research exploring the theoretical and practical aspects of materials and technology made to help teachers in providing content and aid for students with disabilities and their applications within education. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as assistive technologies, instructional practice, and teaching materials, this book is ideally designed for school teachers, pre-service teachers, academicians, researchers, and parents seeking current research on advancements in materials provided for teachers of disabled students.
