Using Assistive Technology (AT) to Support Children with Dyslexia, ELL Students, and Other Reading Challenges ACADEMIC SUPPORTS

For more information or to register for this training, visit: https://www.cahelp.org/

Assistive technology (AT) and accessibility resources can serve many purposes for individuals that present with vision, hearing, mobility, and neurodiversity (ADHD, seizures, autism). Accessibility resources can help students with learning disabilities unlock their potential by addressing their needs. Disabilities come in a variety of ways - both visible and invisible. This webinar will focus on those learning disabilities that are invisible and found most commonly in the population - dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and dyslexia. In this brief and non-threatening workshop, a discussion and demonstration of AT tools to support children with dyslexia and other reading challenges, as well as children who are English learners will take place with the aim to promote independent learning to the maximum extent possible.

Intended Audience

School psychologists, speech-language pathologists, general education teachers, special education teachers, and administrators.

Visual Storytelling: A Pathway to Writing ACADEMIC SUPPORTS

For more information or to register for this training, visit: https://www.cahelp.org/

In our current society, almost everything is in a state of flux and change, from technology to businesses reinventing themselves. In light of these changes, it would seem obvious to give our students tools to think creatively and find multiple solutions to the problems that need solving. Visual storytelling is designed to contribute to the 21st century skill sets that students need to think creatively by using simple materials in the classroom. During this training, participants will learn the elements and principles of abstract art to help students produce artwork that serves as a bridge to their text-based stories; as well as, creating a learning environment where students have the courage to let go of certainties and allow their creativity to take its course. Only available as onsite.

Intended Audience

Special education teachers and general teachers.
