In a response to COVID-19, Knowbility featured a free six-week series called “Toolkit Tuesday’s” supporting students with disabilities and their parents working remotely.
New topics were 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 was held on Tuesday, July 28th and was 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. Students with a variety of backgrounds who represent a broad range of access needs shared their perspectives on the issue.
