Assistive Technology Presentaion

  1. 1. ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY PRESENTATION Krissy Chance-Bailey Module 4 Spring, 2014
  2. 2. What's an IEP? Individual Education Plan  An Individualized Education Program (IEP) describes the educational program that has been designed to meet that child's unique needs. Each child who receives special education and related services must have an IEP. Each IEP must be designed for one student and must be a truly individualized document. The IEP creates an opportunity for teachers, parents, school administrators, related services personnel, and students (when age appropriate) to work together to improve educational results for children with disabilities. The IEP is the cornerstone of a quality education for each child with a disability (Concord, 2014).
  3. 3. Who Needs an IEP?  A child who has difficulty learning and functioning and has been identified as a special needs student is the perfect candidate for an IEP (Kidshealth, 2014).
  4. 4. Background ADHD FACTS: ADHD is a neurobehavioral disorder generally characterized by the following symptoms: Inattention Distractibility Impulsivity Hyperactivity Types of ADHD ADHD is classified into three subtypes: Predominantly HyperactiveImpulsive Type . Behavior marked by hyperactivity and impulsivity, but not inattentiveness Predominantly Inattentive Type . Behavior marked by inattentiveness, but not hyperactivity and impulsivity Combination Type . A combination of hyperactivity/impulsivity and inattentive symptoms. This is the most common type of ADHD (NYT, 2014)
  5. 5. Auditory Processing Disorder Facts: (APD), also known as central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), is a complex problem affecting about 5% of school-aged children. These kids can't process the information they hear in the same way as others because their ears and brain don't fully coordinate (NYT, 2014). APD makes recognizing subtle differences between sounds in words even when spoken loud and clear. Background noise in the natural environment causes interference (NYT, 2014).
  6. 6. Mild Learning Disability Facts: Students with MLD have significantly below-average general intellectual functioning. slow rate of maturation reduced learning capacity inadequate social adjustment. MLD may also manifest itself in Delayed conceptual development Difficulties in expressing ideas and feelings in words Limited ability to abstract and generalize what they learn Limited attention-span and poor retention ability Slow speech and language development Underdeveloped sense of spatial awareness. Students may experience difficulty with reading, writing and comprehension and have poor understanding of mathematical concepts (SESS, 2014).
  7. 7. Assistive Technology Assistive Technology includes assistive, adaptive, and rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities and also includes the process used in selecting, locating, and using them (Wikipedia, 2014). Resources: National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials Quality Indicators for Assistive Technology (QIAT) National Assistive Technology in Education Network (NATE)
  8. 8. Instructional Practices: Differentiating Instruction     small group collaborations allows for flexibility and peer facilitating customize learning assignments by breaking into chunks or more manageable sections Incorporate student interests to increase motivation to learn Have students actively participate in lecture/lesson
