Publisher Description

Parents and even some educators have misconceptions about assistive technology tools and their role in the classroom. It is my goal, in my professional position and as a parent advocate for my daughter, to expose the truth and help educators and parents to discard the myths about these amazing tools. All students who need assistive technology tools should have full and complete access to them when needed. 

Many of the apps and strategies mentioned in this book are quite simple, but are still underutilized by the students who need them most.

Siri Dictation

Jenny's book shares an incredibly touching story of a student who's writing drastically improves by using Siri Dictation. The book also includes great ideas and videos with closed captioning for other accessibility features to use in the classroom or with your own children. Check out the tip for using Clock to set different alarms throughout the day for reminders. I set an alarm everyday and never knew you could change the name!

iCan with iOS provides modern solutions for any child

Jenny Grabiec’s approach to modernize learning with her book is second to none. Jenny’s observations and lessons to help students speak, comprehend, write and show their thinking are cutting edge. Today’s devices allow students to go beyond traditonal lessons and assessments to get to the heart of each child’s true abitliies, and Jenny beautifully gives us tangile tasks and ideas to help make each child feel successful. I highly recommned this book for any parent, educator or student.
