Believe in Assistive Technology: Strategies for Students with Significant Disabilities Across ALL Learning Environments

As winter 2021 approaches and hybrid models of education begin, many districts will continue with online learning options. What does effective and meaningful online learning look like for our students with complex bodies and complex communication needs? What are some strategies to improve learning that could be implemented online and in-person?

Now, more than ever, a collaborative approach is needed to meet the needs of our students. The Special Education Technology Center invites teachers, paraeducators, parents, speech-language pathologists, and motor therapists to participate in a day of professional development filled with practical tips for expanding language and increasing literacy skills across all environments. Evidence-based strategies to build communicative competencies for students with complex bodies will be shared. Demonstration of low-cost tools and online resources to increase student engagement and build collaborative learning opportunities with caregivers will be provided. Participants can expect a discussion of tech strategies and adaptations to evidence-based communication and literacy instruction for students with complex bodies, including those with visual impairment and English-language learners.

Training will be held Friday, January 29th, 2021 from 8:30am to 3:30pm. Cost of the training is $45 and 6 clock hours available through ESD 105 for a small fee.
