Assessing Students Needs for Accessibility Supports
Presented by Jan Rogers- OCALI
September 15, 2017
Summit ESC
Room 17 / 19
Many students find accessing and using traditional classroom materials challenging. Students with reading and visual challenges may have difficulty reading traditional textbooks and hard copy materials, students with motor challenges may have difficulty manipulating classroom materials, some students may struggle organizing and planning their work. Accessible technologies and materials can make a difference for many students in helping them to become more successful and independent. Join us for an opportunity to learn how to determine which features and technology supports may assist students to participate and access everyday school and life tasks from communicating, reading, math, recreational activities and many more. Additionally, we will discuss supports available for struggling readers through accessible education material (AEM). Much of the focus of this session will be on understanding the assessment process as well as learning about tools and resources to support the assessment process for AT and AEM. Many OCALI online resources will be reviewed. This session will include lecture, small group activities, and hands-on lab experience. Participants are encouraged to bring their own devices (BYOD).
