Deb (@slpdeb), Tricia (@tlazarro11) and Patrick (@teachntech00) spend some time talking about a very interesting TEDx Talk by L. Todd Rose “The Myth of Average”. This talk has implications for education and attitudes about teaching to ALL of the students. We also talk about some interesting ways to work with parents and PlaydateDG58.
Accessibility is a priority to the designers and engineers at Apple. They have built some amazing software right into each operating system, from OS X to iOS and there will be even more in iOS7 in the fall. All for no extra charge to be able to use the products if you have a visual, hearing, motor, or cognitive disability.
Even if you don’t have a disability, you can take advantage of these systems for yourself or other family members.
Here are five different ways to do just that.
