Webinar: iPad Adaptations in Minutes


Description:

While the iPad is promoted as a universally-designed tool, individuals with various disabilities often benefit from the added support of adaptations. This webinar will demonstrate over 30 ways an iPad can be adapted in five minutes or less using everyday materials. Participants will learn to mount an iPad so the camera can be stabilized and used as a video presenter, presentation, lecture, or capture tool; adapt a stylus or use innovative input methods; create tactile graphics for iPad apps; attach an iPad to a wheelchair, bed, crib, chair, or a person; recess an iPad into a table or tray; and learn creative ways to protect an iPad.

Sponsored by Assistive Technology in New Hampshire (ATinNH)


Who Should Attend:

General and special educators and paraeducators, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, assistive technology specialists, independent living specialists, vocational rehabilitation counselors, medical equipment sales personnel, parents, and consumers are encouraged to attend.
