Drag to resize
 This session will take a fast-paced look at AT, AAC and Early Learning apps available for Chrome/Android and Window 10/11 platforms.   We all know there are endless apps and cloud resources for IOS, but what happens when the available device is not Apple based? Together we will review current Chrome/Android and Windows 10/11 tools that support communication, social, academic, organizational, adaptive, and behavioral skills. Participants will leave knowing what applications are available, how they work, how they support learning and access, and where to find them. Ideas for implementation and use will also be discussed.

Irene Hughes, MOT, BS
I have been working in and around the education environment for what seems like 250 years. In 1979 I began my career as a Special Education Teacher in Roseburg, OR and in 1984 received my Master's of Occupational Therapy. Since then I have been teaching, advocating and coaching individuals from infancy through 21 and beyond. I am highly vocal about equity, independence, and self-determination for all individuals, especially students with different abilities. For the last four years I worked at Evergreen Public Schools in Vancouver, WA developing their AAC/ AT department in an innovative way that provides all students with timely, quality access to AAC and meets the needs for the district. My one direction from administration was to assure all students have a voice. I know that everything is figureoutable; now if I can figure out what to do with my newly retired life.
