This webinar demonstrated a path to integrating assistive technology in an inclusive classroom environment, so that it becomes part of the whole classroom experience and not something limited to a few students. Learn to create an environment in which students who use AT do not feel as though they stand out in a negative way. Here, Dr. Heipp shared techniques to help teachers, therapists, administrators, and aides--from preschool classrooms to high school advanced placement courses--feel confident in creating your own inclusive activities for students.
Raymond Heipp - With a long career begun as a Latin teacher who recognized that he began to see that some students, who had been labeled as “lazy” or “dumb” by other teachers, were struggling to learn the same way as the successful students in his classes, and over time he refocused his passion for education to helping those who had difficulties in learning. After getting his Doctorate, Mr. Heip developed programs for students with differing abilities, until he was directing special needs programs. After a lengthy stint working in a corporate technology company, Dr. Heip now enjoys a role in which he collaborates between classrooms and manufacturers to bring about a better understanding of the struggles our students and teachers face daily -and how they can be lessened. His philosophy of life is that everyone has a voice which makes a difference in this world. It is up to us to make sure each voice is heard, even if it is through an AAC device!
