Present Level of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance:
Eric participates in regular education programs for his academic subjects. His hand strength is limited and he fatigues quickly when doing any handwriting task. Civics and English homework are a particular problem because of lengthy assignments and reports that need to be completed.
Eric will use a computer or portable word processor to complete 100% of his assignments in 10th grade English and Civics classes.
Assistive Technology for Eric:
As you read, Eric has limited strength in his hand and has difficulty writing for long periods of time. His annual goal states that Eric should use a computer or word processor to complete both his English and Civics assignments.
|While in school and moving from classroom to classroom, Eric can use a portable word processor to type class notes or in class assignments. He can then connect his portable word processor to a laptop or desktop computer to access the material through Microsoft Word.|
|When working at home or in a library, Eric can use a computer to access Microsoft Word to type his assignments.|
