AT Tip of the Week
Week of 5/2/2019
This site gives you open source (read: free!) materials for 3-printing your own customizable keyguards for your students. Keyguards provide easier motor access to devices for students with motoric issues since they physically separate regions of tablets, etc. Most high schools (and some middle schools) have 3-d printers nowadays. Check out this site and design your own customized keyguard for very little money. If you don’t have access to a 3-d printer (check out a local Maker Space too and some town libraries have them as well), you can send out your customized design to the company and they will print them for you – still at a fraction of the cost of typical customized keyguards.
These tips will cover a variety of areas, devices and tools. Most of the tips will focus on low or no cost AT. We hope these will be helpful for you or others you work with in your schools, districts, at home or in your workplace.
Please feel free to send us any tips that you feel would be helpful for others.
