Students with ADHD often face academic challenges (Rawe, 2014). Researchers have examined ways in which various levels of assistive technology (AT) devices to help mediate some of these challenges. A selection of AT options range from high-tech, mid-tech, to low-tech, and each level were examined for their effectiveness, ease of use, and affordability. Additionally, researchers used AT with an at-risk student with ADHD in order to examine the effectiveness when improving the student’s academic success. Researchers discuss and examine applications of AT in the classroom in order to provide educators with information on how to assist students who have ADHD and/or are struggling academically.
