FREE Technology Webinar, Tues 4/23, 9:00 PST


Don't miss this FREE WEBINAR.

Are you using the tech tools of the 21st century effectively in your classroom?

There is no such thing as a "typical" classroom these days. Standard teaching tools of the past are changing rapidly. New tech tools can feel intimidating if we aren't quite sure what to do with them or how to use them. But technology is a "game changer" for our students with autism and related special learning needs. Modern tech tools can become powerfully effective for helping students avoid behavior problems and participate in activities successfully.

The bonus is how ALL students can benefit as we integrate these tools into our learning environments.

This is a FREE webinar. . . .our gift to YOU to honor April Autism Awareness Month.
