03/07/2023, You Can Do It! Implementing Switch Activities Throughout Your Student’s Day

Date: 03/07/2023 Time: 4:30-6:30 pm Location: internet Type: Paid Class

Description

The research says thousands of repetitions with variation (moderate differences) are critical to learning a new motor task (retrieved from Linda Burkhart Two Switches for Success). How on earth can you do that within your busy day? In this class, we’ll take you through a typical school day routine to show examples of how to implement multiple meaningful switch activities into what you’re already doing. You will leave with activities you can start right away with your students!
