The Peoria school district is using innovative and creative ways to increase access to assistive technology for all its students. From 3D printed materials and internal collaborations with different district resources, to creative use of community resources, we attempt to be good stewards of the limited budgets available to help all students. During the session, strategies for collaboration will be shared and participants will be engaged in group discussion about how to replicate some of the same strategies within their own system. Time will be given for group discussion and problem solving during the session. In addition, methods and materials used in the district will be shared with participants. Items include 3D files/designs, low-tech visual supports, etc.
Key Learning Outcomes
1. Participants will learn about different technologies for using technology/resources to collaborate for students with disabilities.
2. Participants will learn how to create many different low-tech options for high incidence student needs
3. Participants will identify how they can replicate some of these processes in their own district.
