Hello, Iowa Secondary Transition Learning Community (ISTLC)
First of all, in this unusual time, we hope you and your families are well, and that if you are perhaps inconvenienced, you are not ill as a result of the COVID 19 issues.
Understanding how disrupted everyone’s lives have been due to the current situation, the decision has been made to move forward with our scheduled webinars, in an effort to provide an opportunity to learn and connect with each other. We have a two-part series on Technology and Transition scheduled for April 7 and May 12. Registration information for the April 7 session is included below. If the situation changes and we are not able to provide the webinar, we will notify you via email.
April 7 Session
We are pleased to invite you to our April ISTLC webinar Accessible Technology Considerations to Support Educational Independence. Our presenters are Lea Ann Peschong, Speech-Language Pathologist and AT Regional Lead with Central Rivers AEA and Tiffanie Zaugg, AT Coordinator and Lead for Students with Significant Disabilities with Prairie Lakes AEA, and Iowa Department of Education State AT Lead. Both Lea Ann and Tiffanie are experienced and have a high level of expertise in the area of Assistive Technology and we appreciate their willingness to provide this learning opportunity.
About this webinar:
Through the use of assistive technology (AT), students with academic disabilities are successfully and independently pursuing post-secondary education. To meet their unique learning needs, students must be informed, have access, and utilize various features of AT that support their needs. This webinar will focus specifically on the areas of reading, writing, and organization. Session participants will gain an understanding of considerations related to the identification and use of AT features critical to promoting independence in these areas.
Lea Ann and Tiffanie invite you to submit questions you would like them to address during the webinar through this Google Form. Please submit your questions as soon as possible so that they have time to review and prepare prior to the session on April 7.
