Present Level of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance:
Johnny uses his right hand to write and to physically position his left arm and hand. He has difficulty managing papers as he writes. He collects and utilizes a lap trap, incline board, non-slip mat and modified clipboard but often waits for staff to set up modifications.
Johnny will initiate the set-up of his writing station 80% of the time given a chart of needed materials for each task.
Assistive Technology for Johnny:
As you can tell, Johnny has difficulty setting up his desk and often relies on his teachers. Because Johnny's annual goal consists of him setting up his own materials 80% of time, it is necessary for him to have a graphic chart or organizer to help him stay focused and remember all of the materials. Johnny can use an a graphic organizer software program from http://inspiration.com, and can follow the steps in the organizer to successfully set up his desk.
|Along with using http://inspiration.com, Johnny's teachers can find various apps on the iPad that will give him charts, graphic organizers, and/or games to help him successfully set up his learning area.|
