On Tuesday, April 10th, we will host Sharon Meldgin, M.A., AT, who will give a presentation on how to access resources and assistive technology to enhance learning for students.  She will discuss how having access to resources and assistive technology in school and at home is imperative to many students’ academic success and independence.  In addition, she will share information about free and inexpensive resources and software available for students.  The presentation will also cover many inexpensive or free APPs for iPads and iPods.
This presentation is scheduled for 7:00 PM in the Park Jr. High LRC (333 N. Park Rd, LaGrange Park, IL)
