Description:

What is in your bag of tools when you walk into a classroom?  Literally.  In this hour-long webinar, we will look into my toolbox I have carried with me around the world when working with AT/AAC users in and out of the classroom.  We will also talk about those non-tangible tools, teaching tips and tricks to add to your toolbox to help students succeed whether in the therapy or the classroom.
 
Learning Objectives: In this webinar participants will be able to...
  • List three tangible items to add to a toolbox
  • Describe two teaching tips for student engagement
  • Implement one teaching strategy to increase student engagement

Presenter:

Sharon Redmon is a SpEd and GenEd teacher with over 20 years of experience.  She holds a Masters of Science degree in Adaptive Education: Assistive Technology and an Assistive Technology Practitioner (ATP) license from RESNA. Sharon's passion for AT and especially AAC began with her first teaching job in WI where she became involved in WATI and continues today as a leader in the WI AAC Network created by an AAC Communicator.  Sharon has been an AT specialist for a WI and WA school district, ECSE teacher (low incidence population), SPED/ABA/Autism coordinator/teacher, high school and kindergarten teacher and now ATP in private practice. Her classroom experience in WI, WA and overseas schools, has given her a unique perspective on how UDL, AT, and AAC intertwine.  She is excited to be back in Washington State and working with individuals of all ages and abilities to access communication and their environment.
