Series Description


Successful assistive technology programs begin with a vision of what quality services should look like and a course of action that helps the agency move toward that vision.  This series is intended to support educational leaders in developing and/or improving assistive technology services by offering a practical roadmap to effective assistive technology services.  Throughout the series, participants will investigate barriers many districts face in the provision of assistive technology and focus on specific leadership actions that can move districts toward high-quality, and cost-efficient AT services. 

This online series is designed with pre-recorded modules and live webinars providing learners with flexible and interactive learning experiences.  Participants will be assigned online modules created by Gayl Bowser, author of Leading the Way to Excellence in AT Services:  A Guide for School Administrators providing guidance and resources to build successful AT services in your agency.  Throughout the school year, opportunities for live coaching sessions will be scheduled with time for interactive discussion, coaching on module content and additional resources. 

This session is intended for two audiences:  educational administrators and assistive technology providers.  Educational administrators include principals, assistant principals, special education directors, special education supervisors and/or anyone else filling a position of leadership in the schools.  

Sessions may be attended Individually, but it is recommended that leaders engage in the full year long pre-recorded and live coaching for maximum benefit.  Mark your calendars for the series schedule:
