    Assistive Technology: Using Environmental and Universal Tools in Early Childhood
    Children with and without special needs, often engage with or use assistive tools. Professionals and family members use many different types of assistive tools daily but may not realize it. The purpose of this course is to provide guidance on what assistive tools are, how to make decisions on when to use them, and how to use them appropriately within a child’s daily routine. The materials in this course focus on practical application within the field for professionals to facilitate the use of assistive tools for children and families.
    Target Audience
    Early Intervention Service Providers and staff, Early Childhood Classroom teachers and home visitors across Pennsylvania Early Childhood programs.
    Learner Outcomes
