Video of the Week: A School-based Approach for Supporting the AT Needs of Young Children
We’re excited by the growing number of professionals who support the AT needs of young children, and, like many of you, always appreciate learning more about the practices of agencies and school systems that have initiatives in this area. It takes a lot of courage to share your practices and approaches, and we respect those organizations willing to do so. In today’s video, we learn about the processes in place in Fairfax County, Virginia which serves approximately 25,000 special education students. Dr. Cheryl Temple and her colleagues Celeste Rodrigo and Malia Waller, explain their process for supporting young children with AT needs, including AAC, in early childhood and preschool classrooms.
Many thanks to the Center on Technology and Disability for hosting this webinar and making the recording available.
AT Assessments and Interventions: Tots Can Tech, Too
You can access the handouts for this session from the CTD website here and here. For more information on the WATI SETT process, mentioned several times by these presenters, see this compilation of resources.
We’re looking forward to seeing how AT assessment processes evolve to address the ever-changing landscape of new research, technologies, and implementation information. How does your school system approach the AT needs of young children? Let’s open a conversation about meaningful ways to support large numbers of young children with AAC needs.
