What are the features in a strategy or tool that are needed?

Before we move into identifying “specific" strategies or tools, it is important to identify what features you are looking for. Sometimes you will find multiple features in one tool.


OR you may end up needing something specific because one tool is the only solution that has a needed feature. OR you may not want to end up with a complex or complicated tool to use that has more features than are needed! 

Be specific about what you are looking for (e.g. we need to be able to make textbooks accessible; we need a tool that will enable the student to read worksheets with more independence; we need a word processing program with support for spelling, like word prediction).
