Assistive Technology Workshops
Designed for your school – Delivered at your school
Every student has the right to be as successful as possible. There are strategies and tools available within your school and on the Internet that can help students develop to their full potential. Allow us to share the power of these tools and strategies through our Assistive Technology Workshops.
Participants will receive tech integration compensation and staff development hours for attending these after school workshops, with additional opportunities to earn staff development hours through extension activities. The target audience for all AT workshops is special education staff and general education staff who work with students with disabilities, but any staff member may attend.
