Developing District AT Programs
Administrators & AT Specialists
6 hours in one day live or virtually in 3-two hour segments
In this workshop participants will explore several models for meeting AT needs in districts large and small as well as the SELPA level. We will explore the use of the expert model (if you want to stick with it, how could it be more effective?) as well as models that allow for teachers and other curriculum experts to implement AT accommodations. Nationally used quality indicators will be introduced as a way to evaluate effectiveness.
Participants will learn about the benefits and drawbacks of various AT models and work in small groups to evaluate district/student/budget implications of each. Participants can use their own district information for activities or use scenarios provided. If you have an AT team, come together and use this time to think and strategize with support; or alone, and work with colleagues to find your starting point or plan new strategies.
