Wow! Such an excellent point made here. So often it doesn't occur to us how much of an issue money can be when it comes to a student's learning and the resources needed for them to achieve. When I sat in on IEP meetings and when I've volunteered, it is my understanding that if the student needs a certain device or piece of technology in order to be successful in their setting then it has to be funded by either the school or the district. I'm not exactly sure how all of the legalities of it works or if there are certain requirements, but from what I gathered the student should be provided with the necessary materials to be successful in the school setting. However, in some school districts or areas of poverty this may not be feasible and I'm curious as to how teachers and administrators take this into considerations and ensure that their students succeed. Great post!

      I am not 100% sure, but I think that there must be some sort of funding for this type of thing at some schools. I can't say that this is the case at all schools, but I have worked in three different... more

      I think that you make an interesting point with this. I have thought about this with kids who are not able to afford technology when they might need it. From my experiences I have seen that some... more
