Course Description

Designed primarily for students with disabilities; guides students through a process to assist them in determining which form of writing (i.e., pencil and paper, keyboarding, or speech recognition) best supports their written expression. Students will learn how to use a range of assistive technologies for writing, such as speech-to-text software, spelling and grammar helpers, word prediction tools, and mind mapping applications. They will also learn strategies for integrating the use of these assistive technologies into the writing process. (Units do not count toward the Associate Degree.)
