The First Ever Ability Awareness Week at Capri Elementary! (Encinitas)

Capri held it's first Ability Awareness Week January 25-29, 2016.  It was organized by Jen Simons.  She's a parent and the Special Education Liaison for Capri.  She asked if we could host a table during lunchtime at both the main area (grades 1-5) and the kindergarten area.  Students were able cycle through and learn about/experience various technology used by students with varied abilities (including text-to-speech, speech-to-text, Alternative Augmentative Communication and switches).  We were happy to be a part of it!
