Uploaded: March 14, 2016 |  0 Comments  | 

This three-part webinar will provide participants with information about decision-making tools that assist teams in the assessment process as well as the benefits of audio-supported reading in the context of “listening to learn,” and how Bookshare membership can provide lifelong learning opportunities. Specifically, participants will learn about the AEM Navigator and AEM Explorer, Protocol for Accommodations in Reading (PAR), the SETT Framework, and PA’s Guidelines for the Provision of Accessible Instructional Materials as decision-making tools. Participants will also learn how students can utilize audio-assisted reading to access curricular content and gain needed information using Bookshare books. During the third session, participants will learn about the importance of effective transition planning and how Bookshare membership can benefit students as they leave secondary school and move on to higher education, employment, and independent living.
