AT Series: A Closer Look at Access
Advanced Strategies: Joining the Journey, and not Just Looking for Simple Solutions
Thursday September 30, 2021 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM - Webinar
The focus of this session will be taking an “in depth” look at various aspects of access, including scanning, eye gaze, equipment, activity, classrooms, school days, and an individual student functioning within a group and alone independently. As a whole, this process is akin to a journey.
- Identify two specific challenges any student faces when using scanning as an access technique with AAC.
- Identify three issues of inaccessibility within the classroom that can be shared and, in time, altered with team support.
- Identify at least two times in a week when modeling of language, partner-assisted scanning, and AAC and/or access to AT may be added to optimize interactions with students who are non-speaking.
