Make and take eight multi-use assistive technology solutions that can be used in 25 different ways to support students with disabilities. Each year hundreds of new tools, materials, and techniques are discovered for creating assistive technology solutions in minutes. Participants will use new specialty tapes, fasteners, and plastics to create multi-use, portable, collapsible, reusable, repositionable devices for reading, writing, communication, life skills, transition, art, music, and leisure and recreation for students who experience vision, hearing, communication, physical or intellectual impairments. In addition, participants will explore over 30 new ordinary items that can be transformed into hundreds of technology solutions for students with disabilities. There is a $35 materials fee in addition to the cost of the workshop.
