Spotlight on Accommodations

This 25-minute presentation provides a demonstration of an accommodation that students with ASD have found to be useful in the classroom.   In this presentation, Cathy Zenko defines accommodations and lists examples of common accommodations.  Viewers will see a demonstration of the app, Notability, and learn about its different features.  Notability is a note taking app, which integrates writing, typing, drawing, and audio/video recording to create a single note or to annotate PDF’s.   Notability is available for Mac, iPad, and iPhone.  Links to a variety of related resources are listed below.
