Join us as we explore developmentally appropriate apps and other technology resources for supporting the growth of language, play, literacy, and early math skills for children birth to eight years of age. Current research on the use of assistive technology for young children with disabilities will be discussed, as well as the role of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in early childhood settings.
Bill Wilmot comes to CAST with the belief that school can be redesigned for all students. As an Implementation Specialist, he works with school teams to rethink curriculum, instruction, and learning environments to provide access to all, using the UDL framework as a tool for redesign.
