Assistive Technology

 Assistive technology devices and services are available to students who have been identified as eligible for special education services and demonstrate a need.  Tomball ISD boasts a cohort of trained administrators, teachers, appraisal personnel, speech therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and certified hearing and vision specialists who work collaboratively with the student and family to identify assistive technology solutions that will result in student access to the curriculum and provide training to the student, teacher and other support persons.
We are expanding our use of digital materials that provide various supports to our students.  Links and log-in credentials to digital text available to all students are located on our webpage  http://bit.ly/2oeFjX8.  
 
For qualified students we are expanding the use of two resources, Bookshare and Learning Ally.  We are very excited to add these tools to our toolbelt of resources and expand access to curriculum.
 
In alignment with our remote instruction, we have added a calendar that includes all of the trainings scheduled to support the integration of curriculum access tools and other assistive technology supports.  Please visit the calendar or let us know what trainings you would like to receive.
