Educators in Mesa, Ariz., schools are using federal grants and a state lending program to provide assistive technology devices to students with disabilities to enhance their inclusion in general education classrooms. Along with improved assistive devices, the computers allow students to use the same technology as their peers to remove learning barriers, officials said. "If you give the kid the correct tool, they don't need to be in (self-contained) special-education classes," said Kristen Hartsuff, a district special-education director.
