This workshop for practitioners working with students experiencing profound and complex needs focuses on how technology might contribute to the development of early communication skills. We explore access assessment and skills development with a range of technologies as tools to support engagement and participation in classroom teaching.
We'll look at;
Making informed choices:
Identifying the individual access needs of our students and understanding how technology may be able to meet them
Awareness, Attention and Response
Developing awareness and attention skills through motivating, personalised experiences.
Engagement, Participation and Response
Developing early control skills with a range of activities.
Intentional involvement, extending influence and making choices
Extending control and influence over the immediate environment
Participants will receive a comprehensive pack of hand-outs which include step-by-step guides and a large collection of free software which can be used with mouse, touch-screen, switches and eye gaze systems.
