Thursday, January 3, 2013 Assistive Technology in the Classroom: Putting the Tools in the Student’s Hands
Assistive Technology in the Classroom: Putting the Tools in the Student’s Hands with Bob Cunningham takes place January 29, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Assistive technology provides the opportunity for students with disabilities to compensate for difficulties they experience with engaging in the educational process. Identifying measurable outcomes for assistive technology and incorporating assistive technology tools and strategies as part of the student’s educational routine is a challenge. The Quality Indicators for Assistive Technology Services will be used to guide this discussion. Additionally, this session will describe primary types of assistive technology used to address the areas of reading, writing, math and computer access.
This professional development session will describe best practices associated with incorporating assistive technology in the IEP, implementing assistive technology and evaluating its effectiveness.
