    Preschool/Elementary 8:00-10:00
    Middle/High School 10:00-12:00

    What is assistive technology?
    What are some low, mid, and high technology options for the students?
    Where can I find these options?
    I want/need more training on this option. How can I get it?

    The Assistive Technology team from the Arizona Department of Education with assistance from the SUSD AT Training Team will show you an array of technology options for all disability areas, answer your questions, and ask you your priority for further training in the area of AT.


    A lot of these options apply to general education students.  Districts have information technology specialists in this area.  Joyce Palmer from the Department of Education will be bringing different technology options.
