Access and Explore! Using Environmental Control in Transition

Thursday, June 9, 2016

Presenters:

Carolyn Phillips, Tools for Life Director, Danny Housley, AT Funding & Resource Specialist, Maria Kelley, OT, Senior AT Specialist, University of Washington, Ben Jacobs, Accommodation Specialist, Tools for Life

The move from classroom to “real life” can be a major transition. Students go from being surrounded by their teachers, peers and helpers regularly, to being by themselves more often and needing to learn strategies for independence. Creating an environment in the classroom that enables learning independence can help ease the transition process. In this session, presenters will demonstrate affordable environmental control solutions that can be implemented in the classroom and then used throughout the transition process. Multiple environmental control options and options for interacting with the environment (voice, computer, tablet, phone) will be covered.
