Please join us for a technology and resource roundtable event for students and parents. You and your student will have the opportunity to rotate through tables representing the latest in technology and advocacy resources for students with learning differences. This is a unique opportunity to see technology demonstrated and to ask questions.
Reading tools assist students with decoding, fluency, and comprehension. All reading assistance
presented will use text to speech.

gain access to textbooks and chapter books. Learning Ally, Bookshare, and Audible

Math tools can assist students with computation,
Applications across platforms that support math fact practice as well as make homework more

notetaking system is a useful tool for older students and those transitioning to college.
The mission of StandUpLD is to educate parents about the resources available to them.
Representatives from the PATH project (a federally funded, free resource) will be available to
assist parents in understanding learning disabilities, learning about their rights and
responsibilities, and to help them partner with their local school districts to ensure the needs of
students are met.
Please help us spread the word and feel free to bring your own device.
StandUpLD events are not possible without volunteers. If you can help volunteer for this event please private message us.
