Using Technology to Participate in Social, Education and Community Activities: AT How Can It Help My Child? - Secondary 

*This is a one (1) day event - Wednesday, May 23, 2018

Audience: Grades 6-12: Parents, Guardians, and other interested family members of middle and high school students with IEPs

Presenters: Smita Worah, Ph.D., SERC Consultant and Nitza Diaz, SERC Consultant

Description: 

If you are a parent of a middle or high school student with special needs, you have likely heard the term "assistive technology" or "AT," but you might not be familiar with exactly what that means or how it can enhance your child's learning in school, at home, or in the community. In this session, parents/guardians will learn about the scope and functions of AT, and actually handle many of the low-, mid-, and high-tech devices (from SERC's AT Corner in the SERC Library) that can enhance student learning.

Participants will have the opportunity to share their questions and experiences with other families in the session. Parents will discover how they and the rest of the Planning and Placement Team can determine their child’s need for AT; how to choose AT devices and systems that would make a positive difference in their child’s learning; how to advocate for providing their child with an AT device or product he or she needs; the child’s legal right to AT equipment; and how AT can help a student achieve Secondary Transition goals and objectives.

This session is a collaboration among SERC, the CT Parent Information and Resource Center (CT PIRC), and the Connecticut Parent Advocacy Center (CPAC).
