1. Include a description of the setting you have selected.

2. Include a picture or illustration of the AT device you have chosen.

3. Describe the device and its uses.

4. Explain how it is beneficial to children with development delays.

5. Describe how you could implement the device in your classroom.

6. Reflect on the challenges of implementing assistive technologies in the classroom. Consider how you will seek resources or assistance in learning the device and how to best use it to help the students be successful in their learning environment.

Support your essay with 3 to 5 scholarly resources.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

2. As with all things, teachers and students may face challenges when utilizing assistive technology in the classroom. Discuss challenges one might face when assistive technology is used, and how you as the teacher will handle such situations.

3. After reading "Emerging Literacy through Assistive Technology'" reflect on the importance of pictures and picture schedules for children who are non-verbal or limited in their speech. Describe how picture schedules can be used at school. Discuss other settings to which this skill can be transferred.

4. For this assignment, you will use the knowledge you have gained in this course to create a digital presentation describing five at-home activities for developing language, literacy, and communication skills that are appropriate for children described in the provided "1st grade Class Profile."

Design a 10 to 15 slide digital presentation to show to parents that explains five at-home activities that can be used to develop language, literacy, and communication skills, based on the ELA standards, for their child. Your presentation should include a title slide, references slide, detailed speaker's notes, and include the following:

1. Title and brief description of each activity. Each activity should be developmentally appropriate and engaging. Include two activities to develop reading skills, two for writing skills, and one for speaking skills. Include 1-2 adaptations for children who may be struggling in each area, as well as 1-2 adaptations for those who are above grade level, based on data from the "Class Profile."

2. The activities should teach cross-disciplinary knowledge and skills such as critical thinking and problem solving.

3. A research-based explanation of how each activity will benefit the children, relating it back to the data provided in the "Class Profile."

4. Ways that each activity can be remediated for students with development delays, as well as how it can be enriched for gifted students, based on the needs of students outlined in the "Class Profile."

5. A closing slide summarizing key points in your presentation.

Although you will be making instructional choices based on data from the "Class Profile," remember not to call out individual children or use children's names in this parent presentation.
