Third Thursday - Understanding Assistive Technology
Third Thursday: Understanding Assistive Technology
October 15, 2015
On October 15, 2015 I will interview Jan Rogers, OCALI Assistive Technology Center Program Director. She will talk with me about the wide range of assistive technologies (AT) available to help students and adults with disabilities function more effectively in learning, communicating, and navigating their daily lives. Jan will address how parents can access assistive technology services through the IEP process, who should be involved in the decision-making process, an easy way for parents to understand how the team should approach the decision about what AT devices are most appropriate, and even the issue of funding AT devices. Jan will also introduce you to accessible AT resources where you can further your knowledge and understanding of AT.
