My question is one of access to technology for home schooled children with LD. Based upon the home school groups that we belong to, there are a great many families who choose home school over public school for their LD children. We would like to have access to technology but unless a child is enrolled in the public school system, technology is often too expensive for many home schooling families. Any leads, connections, or suggestions for us?
Homeschooling parents have to be creative and persistent in their search for funding for AT. Get some ideas in Finding Alternative Sources for Funding for Assistive Technology. You can also try out equipment, software, adaptive devices and telecommunications systems at local AT Centers before you purchase. Find those AT lending libraries through the national registries of the AT Alliance or through the National AT Technical Assistance Partnership.
