“I was first introduced to the world of Assistive Technology as a parent. My youngest child has multiple disabilities and when he entered school he began using an AAC device to communicate. At the beginning of our journey, we had so many questions about what tools could assist him both at home and school and how we could implement them into his life. Not having a professional to lead the way led to the realization that other parents and schools may be experiencing a similar situation. This need is what inspired me to make a career change. I received my Masters in Special Education in Assistive Technology and started Adaptech Consulting, LLC in 2010.
I am excited to share my knowledge and skills with you to make a positive difference in your students' lives."
