The Role of Assistive Technology During Transition @ Online
Aug 27 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Technology is everywhere today, from smartphones to tablets to services in “the Cloud”. How can we use these supports when developing a transition plan for students? As soon as we use these technology tools to support an individual with a disability, these tools become Assistive Technology (AT). Join us as we explore the role of AT in transition planning and provide practical real world scenarios demonstrating the power of these tools for individuals in school, work or the community. Presented by: Advancing Opportunities.
