Free Literacy Supports and Study Aids for Students with Special Needs

Date: Thursday, February 7, 2013
Time: 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
SC Assistive Technology Resource Center
Poplar Building
Midlands Center
8301 Farrow Road
Columbia, SC

Presenter: Valeska Gioia, SC Department of Education Assistive Technology Specialist    

Description: There are many free or low-cost literacy supports for students who have disabilities or who are struggling with reading fluency and comprehension.  Many of the resources that will be demonstrated can be implemented in the classroom on a daily basis with little effort.  Students who have experienced failure in academics might be motivated when they realize what tools can help them to achieve academic success.  The Universal Design for Learning concept for all learning styles will be addressed with all these supports.

This training is in the Assistive Technology Resource Center, so no food or drink please.

Cost: Free, but pre-registration is required.
