One of my growing interests is assistive technology for those who struggle with language in any way. On Wednesday at 6 pm PDT (9 pm EDT) there will be a discussion with Bridget Gilormini of the Simon Technology Center (part of the Minnesota-based Parent Advocacy Coalition for Educational Rights, or PACER Center) on Twitter, hosted by The Coffee Klatch (more on TCK on my blog). Go to http://tweetchat.com/room/tck to follow the discussion.
Simon Technology Center Overview
Assistive technology can be a device or service that helps children with disabilities participate more independently within their environment at home or school.The Simon Technology Center (STC) is dedicated to making the benefits of technology more accessible to children and adults with disabilities. Through a collaborated effort involving parents, professionals, and consumers, the STC can provide numerous services for your family, as well as resources and informative answers to your questions. Since 1987, the Simon Technology Center has helped many children and adults, with a variety of disabilities, use assistive technology to enhance learning, work and independence.
