Getting Your Classroom Ready for the New School Year for Your Students with Autism
Tuesday, September 16
This webinar will walk through setting up your classroom if you are teaching students with autism. We will discuss items you will need, steps to take to be prepared for day one of school and the days to come after that. Children with autism have a very specific set of characteristics and therefore also require a very specific set of strategies as well. I will share some of these important strategies with you.

Introduction to Classroom Suite
Wednesday, September 17
Classroom Suite is a unique software intervention tool developed upon the principle of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) that combines two educational paradigms—systematic, explicit instruction and flexible creativity tools. Teachers have control over specific learning objectives, allowing differentiated instruction for individuals and groups to help students in grades PreK-5 achieve mastery in reading, writing, and mathematics. This session will introduce you to Classroom Suite and how to customize templates and assign work to students. Learning how to customize a template is a primary skill needed for successful use of Classroom Suite. Customizing the templates will help teachers support the Common Core Standards and provide practice and reinforcement of basic skills.

Fun and Functional Learning
Thursday, September 18
This interactive workshop will take a look at two key elements of a meaningful learning activity: fun factor and functionality. Do you know the key motivators for the individual you are working with? Are there at least 2 of those motivators embedded within each activity? Is the learning activity purposeful and meaningful to the individual and others in the environment? Simple concepts that are sometimes missing in the activities we ask our learners to engage in. Learn how to become a better motivator detective.

Title: Power Wheelchair Assessment: The Team Evaluation - 60 Minutes
Presenter: Michelle Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS
Description: This webinar will utilize a case study to present a power wheelchair evaluation. A team approach is key and specific issues related to school will be included, such as access to the school building and classroom, transportation, transfers in and out of the wheelchair and mounting assistive technology to the wheelchair frame. The evaluation determines readiness, the access method and most appropriate wheelchair base. Evaluation options will be presented when a power wheelchair is unavailable for the assessment or for training.
