Hosted by Clarke Mainstream Services
Friday, April 3, 2015
Location: Marriott Hotel, Springfield, Massachusetts
Presenter: Tina Childress, MA, CCC-A

The Workshop
Apps are not only prevalent in our personal lives but are also used in education as ther-APP-y and communication tools. This relatively new medium can provide accessibility such as captioning; measuring loudness levels in different environments; along with activities for speech, language and auditory training. Learn what features are needed when working with students with hearing loss, see APPs in action and learn where to find free and discounted APPs to use in the classroom, therapy session or at home. Be sure to bring your own device to this workshop.
