Assistive Technology and Positive Behaviors Unite!

Conference Year: 

2013

Primary Speaker name: 

The way in which some children process sensory information may make them feel out of control, exhibit a whole host of behaviors, and have difficulty concentrating and focusing – is there a role for assistive technology (AT) in promoting positive behaviors and enhance development and learning?  Join us to explore how AT may be used to support these young children.  Review key aspects of AT services and devices. Explore the various roles that adults play in collaborative planning specific to the use of AT. Learn about a decision making process about promoting children’s development and learning using AT. Emphasis will be placed on discovering ideas for using AT in situations when the challenge seems to be the way in which sensory information is processed.
