The world around is evolving at an astounding rate. Assistive Technology, or AT, has been foundational in this evolution and a catalyst for positive life-changing results for individuals with disabilities. Beginning a path that leads to college or technical school can be an overwhelming experience. Students need independent access to the curriculum to become life-long learners. AT can increase opportunities for education, social interactions, and employment, especially when there is a focus on technology like tablets, apps, wearables and robotics. With such a wide range of assistive technology solutions, how does one include their choices into transition planning? This presentation will provide a brief overview of the AT consideration process including hands-on demonstration of cutting-edge technology aligned to postsecondary and transition planning. Participants are encouraged to bring their tablets, mobile devices, app suggestions and other questions as they join presenters for a thoughtful discussion on what's new in AT and in the AT community as we explore where we were, and perhaps, where we are going. Get ready to learn how Assistive Technology can help all students achieve academic success!
