Easter Seals SE PA Attended ATIA Conference in Florida

Assistive Technology Specialist Laurie G. McGowan and AT Director Sandy Masayko participated in the Assistive Technology Industry Conference in Orlando in early February.  Laurie devoted two days to a special workshop, iPad Bootcamp, to develop skills in adapting iPads for access, new uses and communication. In the larger conference she focused on workshops addressing assistive technology in early childhood and in adapting play.  Sandy concentrated on workshops that addressed implementing eye gaze technology with children and providing effective professional development.  In addition to the formal presentations, Laurie and Sandy were able to exchange ideas with other practitioners from all over the country in an informal EduCamp that was set up as a series of roundtable discussions.  Sandy and Laurie will be implementing the new ideas in the coming year at Easter Seals.
