Power to the Parent

Description

It takes a team effort to support a student with unique learning needs. Each person on the team has a role and responsibility in the student’s education. Parents are the critical component for their student’s success. However, parents have a difficult time finding the tools to support their children and how to do it effectively. This workshop is designed with the parents in mind.  In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn about the accessibility features of mobile devices, optical character recognition, adapting worksheets, adapting the curriculum, visual schedules and supports, aided language stimulation, as well as other tools to support their child. Participants in this workshop will leave with knowledge of tools and techniques needed to support their child. They will also learn how to work effectively with the education team to effectively support the student.
