âConnect and Discover (Assistive Technology):
Due to the ever-changing nature of technology, it is often difficult to keep up with all of the new and exciting ways to connect with assistive technology. This is my passion and I am constantly reading about, researching and trying different technologies in an effort to share the information with people who might consider themselves technology-challenged or are looking for novel options to connect with the world around them. My goal is to describe and demonstrate how assistive technology can help us beyond just our amplification.
âTransitions - Preschool through High School and Beyond:
As our students go through the various ages and stages, they are expected to have increased responsibilities in terms of equipment maintenance and use and advocacy skills. Can a preschooler use an ear-level system? Should an elementary school student be able to put in their own earmold for their hearing aid? What do high schoolers need to think about before they graduate? Let’s discuss!
