Psst! Equal access is a civil right. Pass it on.
TECHNOLOGY PROVIDES EQUAL ACCESS
Instead of always starting at the low-tech end of the technology continuum, we should ask what tools would give our students the closest approximation to the age peer’s learning process, including acquisition speed of knowledge and closest approximation to the speed and quality of output of the student’s non-disabled peers.
BREAK FREE FROM THE SHAME
New for 2007, this book is the definitive guide designed for individuals and families in coping and succeeding with Learning Disabilities
The DIMS Approach™ is a key focus in my book, Tech Psychologist's Guide to Technology and Access Tools. The DIMS Approach always asks, "Does it make sense?"
This book is for individuals and parents who ask:
Tech Psychologist’s Guide™ to Technology and Access Tools integrates technology information geared to individuals and parents as well as teachers. It explores the traditional special education system and goes beyond, to guide families raising children as motivated, knowledgeable, and contributing members of society. This book asks whether what we’re asking the student to do is developmentally appropriate, that is, does the student have the same opportunities to learn as his peers in a manner to allow dignity and future growth? This guide is the first book to bring technology tools and strategies to students and their parents as well as educators. Since accessing and acquiring knowledge in school is a major barrier for those with disabilities, this book features technology strategies for curricula and an approach to making learning accessible for students with a wide range of disabilities. Beckman’s emphasis on using practical tools combined with the DIMS Approach™ helps families bring about educational changes by asking the question, Does It Make Sense?
Author Dr. Jeanne Beckman is a clinical psychologist and nationally known speaker, providing access to excellence through learning evaluations and technology consultation.
