In a response to COVID-19, Knowbility will feature a free six-week series called “Toolkit Tuesday’s” supporting students with disabilities and their parents working remotely.
Next Session: August 18, 2020 · 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM CT
New topics will be presented each week to support kids and parents who are doing their work from home to ensure that students with disabilities have equal opportunity to access learning materials and activities at home.
In celebration of the ADA 30th anniversary, the first session will be held on Tuesday, July 28th, 2–3pm Central and will be a remote student and parent panel to discuss the challenges related to accessing digital content and how those challenges have been magnified during the pandemic.
