Through this engaging experience, you will become skilled at identifying the specific assistive technology a student with a visual impairment will need based on thorough evaluation. We will demystify the process of using service intensity scales (VISSIT) to identify the appropriate type and amount of support for each student. In the end, we will examine the data to build outcomes that will enable students to seamlessly integrate assistive technology into their educational day.
Get ready for a day that promises to be both enlightening and empowering!
