    AT & UDL: Nuts and Bolts for Students and Adults

    Community Talk with Jamie Martin

    AT Consultant
    Center for Neuropsychology, Learning & Development
    Ann Arbor

    Assistive technology (AT) and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) have become essential elements in the education of students with learning disabilities and ADHD. They are equally important for adults in the workplace.

    This talk will focus on the basics of UDL and how AT helps teachers and employers create environments in which their students and employees can work to their potentials, regardless of learning styles, language skills, and capacity to focus on the task at hand.

    The discussion will address:

    • 3 principles of UDL.
    • How AT follows those principles.
    • Main categories of AT that students and adults can use to reach success in school and at work (e.g., text-to-speech, dictation, word prediction, study skills, and graphic organizers).

    Specific technology tools will be introduced and discussed.

    Date: Tuesday, March 24, 2015
    Time: 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
    Location: Washtenaw Intermediate School District (WISD)
