Call for Manuscripts: April 15 – June 14, 2019
The ATOB Volume 14 Call for Manuscripts will open on April 15, 2019 and closes on June 14, 2019. The Call for Manuscripts runs parallel with the ATIA 2020 Conference Call for Presentations.
Volume 14 Theme: AT for Literacy
Literacy is multidimensional. Assistive technology can be used to improve students’ 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. Literacy is used in social stories for students 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, postsecondary 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.
