Special Needs Students Teach Others About Assistive Technologies

For many special education students in New York City, this school year was the first time they were integrated into general education classrooms. The move is part of city reform efforts in special education that call for more mixed classes of disabled and nondisabled students in public schools.
With limited speech and mobility,
eighth-grader Thomas Ellenson
relies on his iPad to write, work out
math problems and communicate
with classmates. 
To make that inclusion work, students like senior Abraham Axler are calling for a greater understanding of assistive technologies for students with disabilities.
