A training presented on Thursday, January 19, 2012 by Debbie Drennan and Janet Nunez, Parents Helping Parents iTECH Center is called "From Velcro to…. Assistive Technology for Ages 0-5: Exploring the Potential" Assistive technology (AT) can do much to support diverse learners in the areas of communication, behavior, play and learning. This training is focused on giving participants an opportunity to learn about AT tools and learn strategies to create a preschool classroom or home environment designed to engage all learners, ages 0-5 years. We will discuss low-tech tools in the areas of communication, behavior and play, then present a sampling of iPAD/iPOD apps for early learning. You will leave with a basic understanding of AT, possible funding sources, and the benefits of and need to consider appropriate modifications and adaptations through AT to support all young children.
