“He’s not ready.” “She’s too young.”
There is no such thing. The only way to “get ready” for assistive technology is to begin to use it. And, there are no age constraints to assistive technology. However, it takes a skilled clinician to understand how a young child can access assistive technology, decide where to start and match assistive technology to young and complicated bodies. Come learn with us about assistive technology and how to begin with our youngest users. This class will help you move toward assistive technology for your most complex children.
-Participants will learn three areas of development that very young children can benefit from assistive technology.
-Participants will learn about types of switches and switch placement most appropriate for our youngest and most complicated bodies.
-Participants will learn three ways to accommodate for hearing, vision, and dual sensory loss as it relates to assistive technology and augmentative and alternative communication.
