AT & UDL: Nuts and Bolts for Students with Dyslexia
This webinar will focus on the basics of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and how assistive technology (AT) helps teachers create inclusive classrooms that allow all of their students, including those with dyslexia, to reach academic success. The discussion will address the three principles of UDL and how assistive technology follows those principles. Next, there will be a discussion about the main categories of AT that dyslexic students can use to reach their potentials, including text-to-speech, dictation, word prediction, study skills, and graphic organizers. Finally, the webinar will turn to common myths about dyslexia and assistive technology and why AT should be viewed as a legitimate learning tool.
After this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Describe the scope and appropriate use of the Communication Matrix.

QIAT for Leadership: Multiple Levels of Leadership to Support Change
Effective change in assistive technology (AT) practice relies on several critical factors including leadership to ensure that change in practice is planned for and implemented. Leadership can be found at multiple levels in any agency, including administrative roles, assigned and assumed leadership. Leaders can arise from roles on AT teams, job coaching positions, teacher mentors and simply from being interested in utilizing technology for learning and growth in your own classroom of students. We will discuss being a leader, leadership and leading, and the important components of each of these concepts. Using the Quality Indicators in Assistive Technology, you can explore these roles with Kelly and Joan to support implementing effective AT practices in your program. The new QIAT book will be available to webinar participants for a special ATIA price.
After this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Use the quality indicators to assess administrative support for AT.
  • Understand multiple roles of leadership and how they serve as leaders in AT services at their program.
  • Identify 3 strategies to increase their practice as leaders in assistive technology.
