For Parents, Teachers & Health Professionals
Today we are faced with a rapidly increasing range of assistive technology (AT) options that assist children and adolescents who have learning difficulties. Matching the right tools with each individual student is essential to ensuring the best opportunities and outcomes.
However, the choice for parents and teachers can often be bewildering, and this is where a focus on the role of assessment is crucial. The assessment of technology needs must include the student, the tasks they need to achieve as well as the tools themselves, all within the context of their learning environment.
This session will provide a broad outline of assessment strategies and look at some examples of AT options in detail.
