Assistive Technology (AT) enables people with disabilities to participate more fully in all aspects of their lives (home, school, and community).

Kids who struggle in school are often overly dependent on parents, siblings, friends and teachers for help with assignments. By using AT, kids can experience success with working independently.

This workshop will explore tools and ways AT can help students in school address many types of learning difficulties. There are AT tools to help students who struggle with:
• Listening
• Math
• Organization and memory
• Reading
• Writing

Who should attend? Families with a child with disabilities or learning challenges, school staff, other community members
