In today's world kids of all abilities are motivated to use tablets. So how can we increase participation in writing activities using tablets, apps and settings in the formative years to best prepare them for successful transition? Let's get them to enjoy the writing process and using tablets to make it easier! From Pre-K to High School, and Special Ed to Gifted classrooms, students are required to write in some way. This webinar will teach you how to incorporate tablets for all levels of students and individuals living with autism, learning disabilities, and mild to moderate intellectual disabilities. Beyond using a single app, presenters will show several techniques using apps in traditional to non-traditional ways, including QR codes and tablet settings. This interactive session will leave you with a list of apps for iPads and Android tablets to help support individuals with disabilities in the classroom, as well as throughout the transition process into high school, postsecondary and/or community living and the workforce.
