Giving Students a Fair Shot

October 20, 2016 @ 1:10 pm – 3:30 pm

Peter Schaafsma, Assistive Technology Consultant, Wexford-Missaukee ISD

Too often, assistive technology supports do not have the desired effect on student achievement. Somewhere between recognizing the student’s challenges and providing a tool, we miss something. This session will highlight practical areas to begin focusing on if you want to change that trend in your district: why it is important to presume competence in all situations, what thoughtful consideration means in choosing a tool, and creating a plan of action.  We’ll explore ways to introduce new technology and supports to our students in a way that gives them a fair shot at success!
