Presented by: Erin Sheldon

Educators are often limited in their access to different assistive technologies and commercially produced curriculum. We can advocate for new technologies and curriculum, but we also need to maximize the value of what is already available or even mandated in our classrooms. This session will help educators evaluate the features of the products that are currently in your teaching toolbox to ensure we have the tools we need to provide comprehensive literacy instruction to students with complex needs and intellectual disabilities. Just as important, we will evaluate the weaknesses of the supports we already have access to, so we can strategically plan how to augment our toolbox to provide comprehensive literacy instruction.

Audience: Special Educators, Supervisors/Administrators, and Assistive Technology Specialists

Credits Offered: Act 48, ASHA, Psych
