Our speaker for this event, Alison Gammage, is a specialist in the integration of technology for individuals with learning disabilities. She is a renowned presenter who is able to explain the benefits of different tools that will help these individuals to reach their full potential.

The goal of this presentation is to show what can happen after the implementation of assistive technology for students in high school and to remind you of the things to consider when supporting students with learning disabilities.

The presentation will take an in-depth look at the lives of 30 severely learning disabled students after a year's implementation of assistive technology and it's appropriate use. With this school and students not having used assistive technology support in the past, what can we learn from this experience?

Learn how this project changed the lives of these individuals. Hear their observations, comments and understand the potential for future successes from the findings of this year long study.

Participants will learn:

• Who were the students selected? (ie not just non readers)

• What was the pedagogy of implementation?

• What were the struggles and highlights?

• What technology was used in the research?

• What did the testing indicate after 8 months of use?

• What changes were recommended for future implementation?
