Welcome to My Preschool: Communicating with Technology

14:00 minutes

Visit an integrated preschool classroom where students with disabilities have full access to the typical curriculum through the innovative use of high and low technology tools. Students with communication difficulties interact with peers and staff through the use of picture communication boards and electronic devices that incorporate synthesized speech output. Children who have difficulty manipulating books access rich language and literacy materials via the computer. Teacher, Barabara Smith, discusses the range of simple technologies that enable her students to participate in all aspects of the dynamic learning environment that she and her colleagues have created.
