Oct 11 Webinar: Transitioning from High School Using Assistive Technology

The 2012 Assistive Technology Workshop Series hosted by Frank D. Lanterman Regional Center and ATEC. The AT Workshop series will provide a variety of topics that provide people with disabilities, families, caregivers, professionals, and those interested in AT greater knowledge and resources. Assistive Technology is any device, software, or resource that can increase skills and maximize an individual’s potential. 

Local public and private agency representatives will discuss the continuation of AT services beyond high school. Panelists will be present to discuss their agencies’ responsibilities and services regarding AT in the transition process. SCAAC-N will be represented! Gwendolyn Meier, SLP, MT (Villa Esperanza Services) will be on the panel of presenters. This Webinar is for anyone interested learning more about assistive technology and transition from high school, including people who use AT (ages 14-22 years old), parents, caregivers, case managers, family members, therapists, educators, and professionals who support transitioning students.  CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE FLYER
