The Reality of the Situation
When I saw this comic I thought it was quite interesting. Often it appears that one of the main reasons for having assistive technology in schools is to level the playing field among students and to help these students to enter into mainstream. However, I thought it was quite interesting that we don’t always consider the idea of forcing the “normal” students to change but rather we are constantly trying to change the students who might have some type of disability to make them more like the other students. As the comic depicts it is also a reality that many school benefit to quite an extent just by having special program for disabled students.
