This course serves as a primer, for both veteran and newly certified teachers, whose students use assistive technology in the classroom. Technology changes rapidly, so keeping abreast of current assistive technology to meet the specific needs of a student is an ongoing challenge. Reviewing classifications of assistive technologies, both low and high tech, and how they may best serve the student, are the primary goals of this course. In addition, it features legislative background and federal funding for assistive technology. This, along with a robust resource list, makes this an invaluable tool for the VI teacher.
Staff members from districts participating in the Region 10 ESC Title II co-op may take this course for free.
