Last week we had the chance to get to know Tracy from BCEdAccess. She talked about Technology and Inclusion. BCEdAccess is run by volunteers and serves families with disabilities.
Different Modes That Support Learning
Tracy pointed out that technology can support students with disabilities greatly. She talked about FM systems in the classroom which make sounds more clear for students. Moreover, she mentioned that AAC systems are used as ways of typing to communicate. This tool in particular is used for non-verbal learners.
The BCEdAccess Society has helped with funding, psychoeducational assessments, and many individuals. The following video shows a learner with authism. Damon is a non-reliable speaker and uses an IPad to help him expressing his thoughts. The IPad speaks on his behalf. For more information on his story click here.
