Assistive Technology for Note Taking

  • A student with an auditory processing problem may take incomplete notes. Physical and hearing impairments may also limit speed and make note- taking difficult. A note-taking accommodation is intended to provide information that the student would have gotten on his own, if not for his disability. Livescribe should be the first line of support to provide note-taking accommodations.

Testing Accommodations

  • If the student’s IEP requires that test directions be read orally and/or the reading of the test direction is repeated as needed, the Livescribe pen can be used for these purposes.
