Continuing Professional Education - Assistive Technology Foundations

Continuing Professional Education - Assistive Technology Foundations

Assistive Technologies (AT) help individuals with disabilities address a functional need that is related to their disability characteristics. Accessibility and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) are rapidly changing the landscape of access to technology, education, and even social avenues. Understanding these terms and how assistive technologies connect to them is important in a wide variety of professional fields including Early Childhood, Education, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Recreation Therapy, Social Work, Medical fields, Human Resources, and more.

This 6-week Continuing Education course will help participants learn about AT: what it is, where to find it, how to match it to an individual's needs, how to prove it is effective, and avenues for procurement. Participants will engage in a variety of knowledge and skills activities and assessments.
