Each year three events are held across the state of Ohio which focus on numerous assistive technology devises, software, or organizations which support the use of these for any student, but in particular those students identified as students with a disability. Your State Support Team Region 15 which serves the counties of Ross, Pike, Scioto and Lawrence is able to have one of these fairs held in our region this year.
If you are a parent of a child with a disability, an intervention specialist, a speech and language therapist, an occupational therapist, a physical therapist, a school psychologist, a director of special education programs, a guidance counselor, an ESC supervisor in regular or special education programs, a CTC VOSEC, or in any other position that serves students with disabilities; then you should be attending this assistive technology fair.
The fair currently has about 20 different companies who provide assistive technology plus some organizations which support school districts in meeting the needs of students with disabilities. (click here for a complete list of vendors with a description of their products or services)
