…was a small gem of a presentation I observed at AASL. Presenter Rebecca Wojahn, a former middle school LMS and education reference librarian at the University of Wisconsin-Eau-Claire, addressing a decidedly spare audience, shared inexpensive ways in which media specialists can help students with special needs access media center resources. She gave a brief tour of the Windows control panel, for example, and the accessibility tools that can aid kids with vision or hearing impairments or learning disabilities. Wojahn, who is the parent of a school-age child with special needs, is soft-spoken but sincere in her message–I will certainly follow up to learn more about her story and what she can share with our readers.
