Inclusive education is not a new practice; however, schools continue to work diligently to make it happen. By law, students with disabilities should be educated in the least restrictive setting with access to their non-disabled peers as much as possible throughout the school day. One way to ensure that this can happen is to provide access to the needed supports. Those supports do not need to be an adult. Also, the supports for students with disabilities do not need to be expensive. Using low tech assistive technology, teachers can help all students reach their level of independence within the general education setting. With the implementation and teaching of visuals, students will not need to rely on adults for success. Visual supports are a low to no cost, low tech assistive technology that can be implemented with little effort yielding maximum results for students with disabilities in inclusive settings within the school environment. This chapter discusses various low tech assistive technology that is of little to no cost to the teacher through the use of visual supports.
