Creating a classroom environment that offers a variety of accessible classroom-ready solutions will provide opportunities to increase communication, social skills, and problem-solving skills while building independence.

In addition, AbleNet University offers more than 200 freerecorded webinars, such as “AT for College/Career Readiness for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities” and “Communication Devices in an Inclusive Classroom.” The recorded webinars are available 24/7 at no charge on AbleNet University’s YouTube channel.
