Online, May 9th, 2022. Part of the 2021-2022 workshop series with the Assistive Technology Conference of New England. For children who write via non-traditional modalities, family and staff often miss the emerging steps of scribbling and drawing.
* Often times someone puts an adapted keyboard in front of them or provide an alternative pencil and immediately expect them to write their name.
* What is needed is to encourage, support, and provide creative opportunities for students with complex learning needs to experience the beginning stages of putting ideas to print through a variety of activities, strategies and technologies that encourage the acts of scribbling and drawing.
- Locate a minimum of 2 apps and 2 products to support scribbling for children/students with complex learning needs.
- Identify a writing scale that recognizes the value of scribbling and drawing.
- Replicate at least 3 scribbling/drawing activities with children/students who have visual impairment and/or physical challenges.
