Abstract

(AT) Assistive Technology helps disabled and non-disabled students to enhance their independence in learning, executing practical tasks, and boosting their activeness during group discussion. AT also improves the class participation of disabled and non- disabled students while guaranteeing their accomplishment of difficult academic tasks. This study discusses the success of assistive technology with disabled and non-disabled students.  It argued that digital revolution has massively transformed the world of education. This study will utilize survey questionnaires to find out the success of technological devices with both disabled and non-disabled student’s schools. The knowledge of teachers in the success of AT make up the skills that such students need to access AT. This case study also explores the challenges faced and means to ensure the success of AT.
