Attend Interactive Training in the Commonwealth! Apple Points The Way to Special Needs Learning

Interactive training is set for four locations around the Commonwealth to help educators and others customize Apple devices in order to help students with special needs engage meaningfully with their grade-level content. 

Training Events  "Reach All Learners" events are scheduled in December in four locations so participants can explore built-in accessibility features in Apple products that benefit students with special needs. See ways that iPad, iPod touch, and Mac can be customized to help diverse learners succeed.

Who should attend? The interactive trainings are targeted to school administrators, special needs personnel, technology directors and IDEA coordinators.

  • Discover the accessibility features included on every Mac and how they support a wide range of sensory and learning disabilities.
  • Experience the accessibility features of iPad, and see how these tools can break down barriers to learning.
  • Explore apps that can help students overcome individual learning hurdles.
  • Get examples of how other institutions are successfully using Apple technology with special needs students.
