The Development and Implementation of a Training Module To Increase the Awareness of Assistive Technology.
Alexander, Gwendolyn Bellamy
This paper reports on a training program that was developed and implemented to increase awareness of training needs in the area of assistive technology. A survey was developed and distributed to Local Assistive Technology Specialists (LATS), parents, administrators, teachers, paraprofessionals, preservice teachers, and service providers throughout Florida. Results provided the nucleus for determining the development and implementation of a training module in assistive technology. A target group of 25 LATS representing various districts in Florida was selected for the study. The project included the completion and compilation of a questionnaire and participation in an assistive technology awareness workshop. Success was measured by comparing pre- and post-test results and attendance logs derived from two regional assistive technology awareness workshops. Appendices provide: glossary of related terminology; Awareness Workshop pre- and post-tests; Awareness Workshop attendance logs; training needs assessment survey; letter of explanation (LATS); letter of explanation (colleagues); total scores by training topic; frequently selected training topics; training locations by district; and an assistive technology inservice planning guide. (Contains approximately 15 references.) (LL/Author)
