EdCamp Access NJ!
On March 6, 2021 the 8th annual EdCamp Access NJ, which was sponsored by The Richard West Assistive Technology Center and NJ CART, took place virtually. This unconference is devoted to topics within K-12 special education, as well as AT. It was an exciting day of learning and networking!
Please consider joining us next year!
ATAC Town Halls:
The Richard West Assistive Technology Advocacy Center (ATAC) in NJ is sponsoring AT Townhalls to provide a platform for professionals and families to discuss AT during these challenging times. Please join the conversation!
AT Town Hall: COVID-19, School Closures and AT: What Do We Do? During these uncertain times, many schools are moving to remote instruction. What does that mean for students with disabilities? How do we ensure that remote instruction is accessible to all students? How can we continue to meet the needs of students who require assistive technology? What do we do about providing related services (OT, PT, SLP) to these students? This is an ever evolving situation and we certainly don’t have all the answers but let’s come together and brainstorm effective solutions. Check out (and add to!) the crowd sourced Google Document with ideas / strategies and questions regarding supporting students with disabilities in these challenging times.
