Tapping into the right technology can make the difference between success and failure at school for students with attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) and learning disabilities. Assistive Technology (AT) helps students compensate for their disabilities while building on their strengths. Using the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), this webinar will focus on tools and strategies that can help teachers support students with a range of disabilities.

Learn about the most popular and effective technology tools for iPads, Windows, Chromebooks, Mac, Smart Speakers and others. Geared for educators, parents, and clinical professionals, this episode will explain how to maximize students’ learning through technology and help them become more efficient, confident, and independent in the classroom.
