After an alarming "SLAM, SLAM, SLAM," Kim often comments to complete strangers how her daughter, Alana's, perfect job would be testing the durability of new products for Anderson Windows and Doors. This one-liner joke is quite successful in bringing smiles to previously startled faces, but there's quite a bit of truth to it. Alana was born with complex multiple disabilities, so Kim has known for years that her daughter's path to employment would be unique. In this webinar, you will learn how to open the floodgates of possibility for individuals like Alana by seeing the potential in their preferred tasks. OPI renewal unit credit is available.
At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, students with disabilities were required to abruptly transition to the use of virtual platforms for everyday activities, such as learning, doctor/service provider appointments, and maintaining a social life. This resulted in educators, parents, guardians, caretakers, and service providers being required to assume the role of technology moderators for students with disabilities. Many new challenges, in which strategies and answers were not available, surfaced.
Please join Dr. Mary Jo Krile for this webinar presentation for a brief overview of the challenges faced, as well as several strategies for addressing them. OPI renewal unit credit is available.
