Hey everyone,
Episode #5 is up for your listening pleasure. Episode #5 briefly explains the my take on the convergence of the educational concepts of Universal Design for Learning, Least Restrictive Environment, and Differentiating Instruction using Assistive Technology.  I also explain that future episodes will have less me talking about the principles of AT practice in public schools in favor of trying to fit in two tips per episode.  Please let me know what you think about the format change.  Good thing or bad thing for the show, what’s your take? 

The tip for this week’s episode is on “Pacing Boards”.  Pacing Boards are simply circles used to facilitate language development.  You can watch a short movie on Pacing Boards here : Keeping Pace
