Winter WATRN Meeting (This meeting is FREE to attend. There is no cost to attendees.)
AT/AAC group for Educators of Wisconsin
Who: Wisconsin Assistive Technology Regional Network (WATRN)
What: FREE Regional meetings around the state of Wisconsin bringing together school professionals interested in topics, collaboration and learning about Assistive Technology (AT) and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).
How has creating and providing accessible educational material changed for you during COVID? We will be discussing: Accessibility Guidelines and Best Practices for Creating Accessible Materials. During this meeting, we will highlight some of the resources available around our state and throughout the US to help you educate and support staff in your district to create accessible learning. A large portion of this meeting will be devoted to discussion and networking so that we can share what is working in other districts. This important topic is relevant to both in-person and virtual learning, and has come to the forefront of AT services in the last year!
