Assistive Technology to Increase Opportunities for Work

By Sayard Bass M.S. CCC-SLP/L, ATP - AT Coordinator for Southwest Cook County Cooperative Association for Special Education (SWCCCASE)

When our students begin training for work an interesting change takes place. The environment, and tasks change. So, what about the tools? We do much to train our students for transitioning into their highest level of independence. What is the role of assistive technology in helping students to access these goals? In this hour there will be discussion of task-demands of the vocational environment, tools specific to these environments, disclosure, and self advocacy. The more a student can access, the more opportunities are open to them!
