Look at key elements administrators look for when considering and purchasing new programs and technology. Adding new tools to the toolbox can be a complex process and maze-like adventure. Get help with questions administrators consider about the “when, how, who, and what” of new programs such as Data, IEP monitoring, personalized learning, standards based instruction, collaboration, and more. Get ready to learn about moving to new programs and tech from concept to a well developed implementation plan for your district!
Join the Teaching Students with Autism community to participate in online discussions with peers, for invitations to upcoming webinars, to view past webinar recordings, to take a quiz and receive a CE certificate for a past webinar, and for access to more resources.
