difficulties.
Richland Elementary School had their 2nd annual Ability Awareness week Sept 28th - Oct. 2nd. On September 30, 2015 we were invited to participate.  Members of our AT team shared how we support students by providing access and tools for communication.  The students got a chance to use some of the devices and programs.  It was a wonderful event.  Way to go Richland team!
