About the Workshop 

How many students struggle with these executive functions – Planning, Organization, Working Memory, and Study Skills? What tools are we offering students to help them overcome these challenges?  This presentation will explore many different assistive technologies strategies, which promote student success.  Participants will learn about numerous options, many of which are readily available as features built into mobile devices.  We will also review the continuum of low to high technology tools to support writing, including some free tools.  Participants will also be introduced to the SETT model.
