Assistive Technology Expo 2020



  • The Calcasieu Parish School Board’s Department of Special Services is inviting the public to learn about the trailblazing advances in assistive technology within the school district. The Inaugural Assistive Technology Expo 2020 will provide hands-on learning opportunities showcasing the latest assistive technology utilized in Calcasieu Parish’s special education programs. Assistive technology grants students with disabilities access to the general curriculum and allows for increased independence in areas such as communication, vision and hearing, handwriting, motor operations, and daily living skills. All district special services personnel will be in attendance, as well as many students and their families. The event is also free to the general public and registration can be completed here.  The experience will give participants knowledge and experience to further pave the way for individuals with disabilities.
