South Carolina Assistive Technology Program: Upcoming Workshops

Written Productivity
Date: December 3, 2014
Time: 9:30am – 11:30am
Cost: Free, but pre-registration required 

Teachers are often in the position of referring students to an AT team for assessment for enhancing written productivity. During this workshop, we will explore resources that are available to help with writing difficulties. We will address motor skills and processing and organizational concerns that many students struggle with. We will review various programs that are low-cost or free, as well as audio recording pens that help with notetaking, organization, and study skills.  We will also go over speech-recognition programs and the criteria that students need to meet to have success with them.

Reading Supports
Date: January 7, 2015
Time:  9:30am – 11:30am
Cost: Free, but pre-registration required 

Students with disabilities or students who are struggling with reading fluency and comprehension can benefit from existing free or low-cost literacy supports. In this workshop, we will demonstrate many of the resources that can be easily implemented in the classroom. We will approach literacy supports through the Universal Design for Learning concept for all learning styles. We will discuss text-to-speech software, Microsoft built-in features, and mobile solutions, as well as various other free resources.
