AbleNet’s Action Dictionary is a reference guide to alternative solutions that support student actions when adaptations are required for communicating, moving, learning and/or generally engaging in the classroom. The solutions and recommendations found in the Action Dictionary are designed for students with cognitive and physical challenges yet other students may benefit from these adaptations as well.
How It Is Organized
Action words like SPEAK, LOOK, CHOOSE are key to both engaging and gauging how students are understanding the instruction being presented by educators. AbleNet has identified these various action words to create a dictionary that provides tools and techniques for different approaches to engaging students around a particular action. Each of these words is listed alphabetically in the Action Dictionary along with three or four assistive technology solutions designed to maximize learning and participation when adaptations are needed. For each action word, there are a description, instructor directions, and how the student uses the technology. To locate an action word quickly, use the table of contents. Words that have similar meaning have been cross-referenced to their counterparts in the table of contents.
