Assistive Technology and SEA Resources

Assistive technology is any device, software, or equipment that helps people work around their challenges. Some examples of assistive technology are text-to-speech and word prediction. Assistive Technology with the London District Catholic School Board is offered through the Special Education Amount (SEA). The resources found on this page will support the tools used by the LDCSB. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to the SEA Trainer, Chad Downes at cdownes@ldcsb.ca
