Recorded: May 16, 2018 – Many students receiving services from Speech-Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists and Physical Therapists need to have their educational materials in accessible formats. AEM give these students access to full participation in the general curriculum.
This webinar informs therapists who work in schools about the steps for implementing AEM for their students who need them. Sections of the Maine IEP form that pertain to Assistive Technology (AT) and AEM are discussed.
