I accepted an invitation from TJ Schlouski, Director of Assistive Technology Services, Illinois Assistive Technology Program to demonstrate my math manipulatives  on January 31, 2014. I appreciated his offer to invite several of his colleagues, including his colleagues from the Illinois School for the Deaf and Illinois School for the Blind in Jacksonville, Illinois.

After my demonstration in Springfield, I will travel to Lisle, Illinois to present at the 2014 Illinois Council for Children with Behavior Disorders on February 1st.  In addition to Mr. Schlouski providing my information to his colleagues,  I appreciate Sheri Cook, Gallaudet’s Midwest Regional Center Director providing contact information for some her hearing impaired colleagues, and Beverly Holden Johns, officer of the ICCBD and IL CEC , professor and educational consultant, offering an invitation to present at the ICCBD Conference. I am anticipating a very productive opportunity to share my ideas with teachers, administrators, and parents from many parts of Illinois.

Hopefully, I will see many of you in Springfield and Chicago!



I appreciate  Ms Danna Bouey, Louisiana  Southeast Region Assistive Technology Coodinator, for driving over to my presentation at the South Central Assistive Technology Center in Lafayette, LA on 10-1-13.  Based on her evaluation of my math manipulatives, Ms. Bouey invited me to demonstrate them to her colleagues in her region on February 14, 2014. Hopefully, other assitive technology teachers and administrators from other regions will be able to attend.
