If you want your messages (via website, emails, presentations, etc.) to reach everyone, a proactive approach to content creation is critical. Nearly 20% of the U.S. population has some form of disability that can affect vision, hearing, dexterity, mobility and more.
Assistive technology (AT), defined as anything that supports learners in doing things they would not otherwise be able to do, can provide the traction learners need to succeed but is often intimidating to educators who think of it as very specialized. Staff participating in the AT Journey will be empowered to individually consider, select and implement AT for their students, yet also recognize when additional perspectives (e.g., teacher, administrator, itinerant staff, paraprofessional, parent, etc.) are critical to this process.
