From computers to smartphones to e-readers, kids today are immersed in technology. This presentation will demonstrate how to take advantage of familiar technology to compensate for learning challenges, capitalize on learning strengths, and reduce time and effort spent on school work. Through lecture and live demonstrations, parents and teachers will learn how everyday tech – word processors, Web browsers, consumer electronics, and more – can assist students who struggle with reading, writing, notetaking, math, organization, time management, and attention.
