EnvisionIT graphicAccording to the Ohio and National Longitudinal Studies, 70% of high school seniors with disabilities say they want to go to college. Yet, a year later, only 30% of these students had taken college classes and only 20% were still enrolled in college. Why is this so? According to Dr. Izzo, these students were not prepared for their transition to college and/or careers. In this webinar Dr. Izzo will present EnvisionIT: Enhancing Transition Through Technology, a 21st century online curriculum aligned with standards and designed for grades 8-12. The curriculum teaches English and language arts, information technology literacy, college & career readiness, and financial literacy. EnvisionIT was designed with accessibility and universal design for learning in mind and is highly customized to meet the needs of students, teachers, and other stakeholders.

How do educators work to determine which tools and strategies a student might require in order to ensure a free appropriate public education (FAPE)? When it comes to the selection of technology, there are often numerous options that might be put into place. Educators at the secondary level can use a familiar framework to help analyze the situation and suggest what to implement from a least to most restrictive point of view. In this webinar, participants will have the opportunity to discuss and practice a method of assessing student needs that incorporates tools and strategies that take the least restrictive approach.
