Apps & AT Across the Curriculum—Supporting Diverse Learners on All Devices
Assistive technology and app options across all platforms and devices will be demonstrated including literacy support, note taking support, executive function support, and support for sensory and physical disabilities. This information is incredibly helpful for high school educators & special educators, technology integrators, high school students, parents, transition coordinators, Vocational Rehabilitation counselors, school counselors/advisors, administrators, and transition coordinators. Many resources will be shared for participants to refer back to and use immediately.
