May 4, 2011
3:00-4:30 p.m.
RSVP by May 2 to storee.powell@usu.edu OR (435)797-7412.
This FREE training by Scott Baggaley will explore using Proloquo2go, its different features and updates for using an iPad as a communication option.  He will also look at different communication app options that are not as famous as the Proloquo2go.  This will include text based communication options for literate users, a scanning option for those who need this as well as sequenced messages.
Scott Baggley has been working as an Education Program Specialist at the Computer Center for Citizens with Disabilities at the Utah Center for Assistive Technology for the past 8 years. He specializes in Computer Access, Augmentative Communication, and Educational Software.
