PrAACtical Site of the Month: Loudoun County Public Schools AT Team
For our March Site of the Month, we return to the public school system, this time to Loudoun County, Virginia. The AT Program has amassed an impressive set of resources, many of which are listed on their web page. We’ve featured posts by some of their AT trainers, such as Chris Bugaj, Judie Schoonover, and Sally Norton-Darr, who’ve written on the use of podcasts and on their approach to professional development. There are lots more resources on the LCPS AT website for you to explore.
- Their AT Strategy-A-Day Calendar is not to be missed. AT team members with expertise in a variety of areas collaborate to create a new calendar every year, and they are always full of great tips, information, and resources. You can view it online or, if you are very lucky, win a printed copy at one of their many workshops and presentations. Bonus: They also share the template so that you can make your own version.
- They compile the resources used in these calendars, and a great deal of other information into annotated lists that are shared at the social bookmarking site, Diigo. Believe me, you can spend hours exploring all of the great material that they’ve created and/or found. Click here to start exploring.
Still hungry for resources? Visit their topical pages for communication, behavior, reading, writing, and more. If the use of technology for collaboration, therapy, instruction, and dissemination is a special interest of yours, you migh also be interested in the preconference workshop that Chris Bugaj and I are doing at the ISAAC Biennial Conference in Toronto this summer. You can learn more about our session and the other preconference workshops here.
In the meantime, happy exploring!
