Hey Tek-ninjas! I want to share one more learning opportunity here. Likely you've heard Boardmaker 7 is being released soon. On November 17th, from 12-1 Tobii Dynavox will be answering what is Boardmaker 7? You can participate in this free in-service by preregistering here.
If you don't know, Boardmaker is a complete special education platform that supports education, communication, access and social/emotional needs. People can use Boardmaker to create accessible activities, find pre-made curricula and activities, collect data, and deliver instruction. It is, imo the gold standard to which all other picture symbols systems are compared to.
The in-service will be presented by Ashlyn Hudson. Ashlyn holds a Master’s in Education with focus on special education and assessment from Texas Woman’s University and a Master’s of Occupational Therapy from University of Texas Medical Branch. Yay Occupational Therapists! She has served many roles in her career, including special education teacher, lead evaluator, transition specialist, special education coordinator, and more recently pediatric occupational therapist in both school and home health settings. Throughout her career, Ashlyn has maintained a passion for promoting independence, access, and participation in all settings of life while working with individuals with a wide variety of diagnoses from birth to adulthood. She's a really great presenter!
