So often we think that we need high-tech and expensive assistive devices, materials and programs like high income countries have in order to support children with disabilities. If we don’t have access to these, we often say we can’t support/teach/help. However, I have seen some of the best teaching and learning materials made using recyclable items and teacher creativity that cost nothing. We need to get to know the children with disabilities’ interests and strengths and create our own low-tech resources based on these.
