IEP Checklist App

There's a new app on the market for special education and it's FREE!  Check out the IEP Checklist App for  your iPhone or iTouch created by the Parent Educational Advocacy Training Center (PEATC.)  It's a helpful app for all sides of the CSE table, is a basic tool to prepare parents and teachers for their meeting.  As stated on their website:

[The] IEP Checklist is a tool for parents and teachers to consider as they develop the IEP. Not every item on the checklist is required by special education regulations. For more information, consult the Federal regulations and other information that can be found at http://idea.ed.gov

Where I.T. is A.T.!

It was wonderful meeting many of you at the Hudson Valley NYSCATE conference and Suffolk County ASSET conference over the past few weeks.  I had a wonderful time at both events and I hope you enjoyed learning about Where I.T. is A.T.!  Here is a direct link to the wiki of resources that I shared during my presentations.  

Do you know of any other free or fee based tools that could universally benefit all learners?  If so, post your link as a comment below.  Keep in touch!
