Workshop Title: Supporting Transitions of AT Users

SPP 5: Least Restrictive Environment Workshop Description:

This training will focus on planning for students who use assistive technology (AT) as they move to new placement settings. We begin with the assumption that IEP teams have already determined that a student with a disability requires AT and that the student has been using that AT in the current educational setting. Although the principles of AT transition included in this session are related directly to the transition planning that is a requirement for students 16 and older in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004), the processes and strategies discussed are generally appropriate for transition of AT users at any age.

Workshop Title: Tactual Symbol Systems: An Introduction

SPP 5: Least Restrictive Environment Workshop Description: Tactual Symbol Systems: An Introduction - Children born with visual and multiple impairments or deaf blindness face many challenges in developing a communication system and language. Typically these students need more tangible forms of communication such as object symbols or tactual symbols before they can advance to more standard forms of communication such as print, Braille, sign language or speech. This workshop will provide an introduction to tactual symbols. Participants will learn why the use of these symbols is recommended, how to determine when the student is ready for using them, and how to incorporate them throughout the student’s instructional day. The lecture portion of the day will include video examples of these symbols being used. The last portion of this day will include a make-and-take so that participants can begin to create these symbols for the student. A working lunch will be provided for participants and their Special Education Directors to discuss the possibility of follow up sessions for students using tactual symbols system during the 2011-2012 school year.
