It is very imperative that students who need assistive technology be able to access those services. Now under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (2004) students can now receive the materials they need to better their learning. The act states that supplemental services and assistive technology be provided when necessary to students who receive special education services. This means that special educational students will be given the support that they need through assistive technology in order to enhance their education to the best of their ability. Teachers believe that not only having assistive technology will help a child with special needs but also involving them in extracurricular activities could be socially beneficial for students by having them interact with peers and non-disabled peers. The numbers of students with special needs participating in extracurricular activities have risen greatly. Also they have begun taking on leadership responsibilities and revealing talents that would not have been noticed inside of the classroom. The students involved are happier to be involved and overall doing an activity that they enjoy and can participate in while having a disability means the world to them. This shows that it is very important for students with disabilities to stay involved with activities that they have an interest in. These resources can help the students become more independent and successful in their future lives. "Boosting Inclusion in After School Activities with AT and Supplemental Services."
