Learning and Vocation
Everyone is a learner! Learning is a lifelong endeavor for all of us. Everyone should have the opportunity to produce and share work. There are a wide array of tools and strategies that can maximize a person’s potential and help them participate in school, work, and life. Some tools can be used “off the shelf” and others are specialized and/or customized.
Some examples of tools and strategies that can be used at school or work:
- Adapted curriculum
- Screen readers
- Voice output apps for presentations
- Visual supports for schedules
- Audio-visual resumes
- Software for reading and writing support
- Adapted keyboards/mouse
- Alternative access to computers
In the AT Lab
A variety of Learning & Vocation tools are available in the Lab to explore during Open Hours or during a personalized Consultation. If we do not have a tool, we may be able to refer you elsewhere. We are available for school or vocational rehabilitation consultations, as well as customized Trainings.
