Continuity of AT Tools: K-12 to Higher Ed Transition

Date & Time
Wednesday, March 20, 2024 - 3:20 PM PDT  
Platinum 7  

The process of transitioning from K-12 to higher education is one full of changes. Awareness and experience with assistive technology tools can be a constant source of support and accommodation as students move forward in their educational journey. Students who have access to assistive technology in K-12 develop skills and understand how these tools can positively impact their learning. Once this knowledge and buy-in is established, students can benefit from these supports in postsecondary education where they are critical to access, retention, persistence and eventually lead to graduation. If institutions know the common assistive technology tools that students are coming to campus having experience with, they can better support their learners by ensuring continuity of access. Upon graduation, students can take these same AT tools with them to the workplace. For campuses who choose to provide assistive technology tools to the wider campus community, they are ensuring access not just for students with disabilities advocating for support, but also those who are under or undiagnosed and/or neurodivergent.

This session will focus on the journey of a student as they move from K-12 to higher education and eventually into the workplace. One assistive technology tool we’ll focus on, which has the capability to provide continuous support to learners is Read&Write. We’ll spend time learning about the types of support this tool can provide during the lifespan of the learner.
