Important Session Information:


Whether participants love, dislike, fear, or embrace mounting Assistive Technology there is no denying it is a necessity and plays a major role in a student’s ability to access and use his/her device successfully.   In this mounting workshop, participants learn what questions to ask to help them determine the mounting option that will successfully meet their student’s individual needs.  They explore the “Why” of mounting and benefits of including mounting into their assessments.   Participants learn specific terminology for mounting to help them communicate more effectively within a collaborative group or when seeking help.   Through hands-on demonstrations, participants learn to use the mounting system as a positioning tool to help meet both the physical and visual needs of their student thus increasing the student’s ability to use their device longer without fatiguing because of improper body positioning.  


Session objectives:

Identify basic mounting principles

Describe parameters for safe mount attachment

Discuss mount installation process
