So excited to share a day with a great group of teachers in Blount County tomorrow!  This district has received an instructional grant to purchase carts of iPads and apps for all 7th grade classrooms to use for reading instruction.  I have created a Livebinder file full of resources, links, tutorials, app lists, and curriculum supports for their use during and after the close of our educational session.  I love the TPACK model (Technology, Pedagogy, and Content Knowledge combination) for integrating technology into the curriculum and we will be using this to help these teachers understand how to select and incorporate iPad tools and supports into their instruction.  If you are also using iPad tools for literacy instruction, feel free to explore these resources!

About Me

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”.
