The Tennessee Association for Assistive Technology has announced an amazing lineup of scheduled sessions for their 2013 conference. Held yearly in Murfreesboro, TN, this is an outstanding event for those who want to learn more about the use of AT in the special education setting. Many of the sessions offered this year are designed to address the use of augmentative communication tools and strategies with language impaired students, while others will focus on using Assistive Technologies to adapt instruction for the new Common Core State Standards. Even better, there are a large number of sessions designed to provide guidance in preparing students with special needs for the PARCC and NCSC related online assessments. PARCC recently released its list of approved assistive technologies that will be integrated into their testing formats and teachers are rushing to find ways to teach students to use these supports. If you’re looking for help with this daunting task, then the TAAT Conference 2013 is the place to be! Session Time Ordered List.

My name is Janice Reese and I LOVE assistive technology! I worked as an Occupational Therapist for more than 15 years, earned a Master’s degree in Education Technology, and I’m RESNA certified as an Assistive Technology Profession (ATP). I have worked in the school system for many years now and I love using technology to enhance the lives of children with disabilities. Since my first love is teaching, I’ve spent just as much time training wonderful teachers everywhere to use these tools in their classrooms. AT4Kids, llc was founded in 2008 in an effort to provide quality instruction and resources for teachers, therapists, student users and parents who wanted to know more about using AT.
I currently serve as Director of the Center for Assistive Technology, a state-supported program of the Little TN Valley Educational Cooperative. LTVEC is a non-profit agency whose goal is to provide rehabilitation services and accessibility supports for students with special needs in east Tennessee. My AT4Kids blog is designed to be as a one-stop resource for ideas and information for those wanting to learn more about the use of AT with children in the special education setting.
I hope to offer helpful hints, program and product reviews, AT recommendations, links to great new finds on the web, and lists of resources for “all things AT”.
