AT at Cove

Every student at Cove School is individually screened for Assistive Technology to determine what tools and strategies best suit his or her skills and needs.  Students are provided with training, both 1:1 and in small groups, until they are proficient using the recommended tools.  At that time AT is integrated into their in-class work.  Individual writing and reading support may also be offered on a weekly basis.  In addition, whole class activities using AT are provided as needed.
