Assistive Technology: Bookshare
Limited Capacity seats available

Reading brings great rewards for some, but for others, it is a painstaking activity. With the right tools, even those who loathe reading can become avid readers, first by learning to read effectively, then reading to learn, and soon becoming lifelong learners. Equipped with stronger literacy skills, these individuals can actively pursue the educational and career advancement opportunities that await them. Learn how assistive reading technologies remove barriers by helping people with various learning differences to read in ways that work for them.

Participants will be able to: describe how to access and use a variety of assistive reading technologies for people who read differently; explain the unique characteristics of these technologies and the types of learners who will benefit from each one; and explain the benefits of Bookshare, a key source of accessible ebooks for people who experience reading barriers.

As educators, we all have been troubled from time to time by the disciplining of a student with a disability when we so clearly see that the disability is a barrier to the understanding of school rules/codes of conduct, and/or the disability is a barrier to responding appropriately to the routine demands of a typical school day.   This session will provide you with an overview of student discipline in DPS, and provide you with strategies for supporting students whose disabilities expose them to discipline consequences.

Executive Dysfunction: Compensatory Strategies for Supporting Students with Learning, Language and Attentional Weakness
Limited Capacity full

Students with varying educational and medical diagnoses often have difficulty in executive functioning skills. These skills (planning, organizing, executing, initiating, emotional regulation, attention/memory, etc) are foundational skills to access academics and cognition. Any deficits or weaknesses in EF ultimately impact classroom performance and skill acquisition. This session will serve as an interactive workshop with a brief education on EF support with compensatory external strategies to improve student independent and classroom experience. Participants will leave the session with the physical tools needed for immediate implementation upon returning to their classrooms. Participants will also gain a better understanding of how to include executive functioning in IEP goals, including progress monitoring methods.

The research-based writing strategies that support both the vertical alignment through all grade levels and the horizontal alignment across all content areas can be implemented in the classroom immediately.

The specific writing strategies and techniques include informative and explanatory, argument and opinion, and narrative. Participants will experience modeled writing strategies, guided practice, and group share.
