 Don Johnston, software developer and advocate for students with special needs, released a video today titled The Case Against AT.

The Case Against AT addresses the history of resistance to assistive technology in schools and suggests that school leaders consider AT accommodations not just for students with disabilities, but also for many other students who need more structured learning supports. Johnston's son Ben Johnston developed the four-minute video as a presentation resource to help practitioners build a case for why assistive technology tools should be used throughout the learning day.
