There are two sessions in this module that will focus on assistive technology to increase the academic and functional abilities of students
“Assistive Technology” is made up of 2 modules, each containing video segments, readings, lectures, and assigned activities to enhance and apply your learning. Plan to spend 1 week working through each module. While this is a self-paced course, the material will have the most impact if you work steadily through the outline in the order it is presented.
The tutorial uses the text Keys to Educational Success: Teaching Students with Visual Impairments and Multiple Disabilities, which is available on Amazon.com
Participants will earn 10 ACVREP credits, 10 CTLE credits, 10 PDP/CE credits by viewing the video presentations and lectures, and completing the assignments. This module may also be completed for no credits (audit) at a reduced price. ACVREP has approved this course for Certified Assistive Technology Instructional Specialists for People with Visual Impairments (CATIS).
