Chromebooks have become a viable tool in providing curriculum access and facilitating academic achievement for students with learning differences.

Accessibility options through Chrome apps and extensions can provide solutions for student success in the classroom and beyond.
Finding the right apps and extensions can be difficult and time consuming, so we will provide valuable, ready-to-use solutions for learning difficulties you might need to address!
