ATOB Call for Manuscripts: April 1 – July 1, 2019
The ATOB Volume 14 Call for Manuscripts opened on April 1, 2019 and closes on July 1, 2019.
Volume 14 Theme: AT for Literacy
Literacy is multidimensional. Assistive technology can be used to improve individual’s outcomes in traditional literacy instruction focused on reading and writing. Literacy also goes beyond reading and writing academic text. It is an important component in learning how to effectively use AAC devices. It allows one to express novel ideas on any topic through the use of 26 powerful symbols. Literacy is used in social stories for people with autism. Nowadays, the term literacy also includes “digital literacy.” That reinforces the use of technology to produce work across subject areas, effectively collaborate and communicate. Literacy, including digital literacy, is often a requirement for employment and independent living. This volume of ATOB invites authors to submit articles that showcase the use of assistive technology for improving literacy outcomes and benefits. Articles may focus on any target population (e.g., young kids, students, post secondary students and adults, individuals with various abilities and needs) for numerous purposes (e.g., learning, communication, social interactions, employment, independent living) Authors submitting articles to this issue are required to draw conclusions about how technology can support any dimension of literacy for individuals with disabilities.
This issue also includes articles from the broad scope of assistive technology research as part of ATOB’s mission to bring together the latest research in assistive technology in its annual issue.
