Hi Everyone —

I am Tina Jones, and I will be the moderator of the discussion for the online Overview of Assistive Technology course. I have worked as the Southeast PATINS site coordinator for 12 years and every day has been different. There are always new things to learn, new problems to brainstorm for solutions, and new things to do with assistive technology. I am looking forward to hearing about each of you so please leaveĀ  a comment with a brief introduction of yourself.

  2. Hi Everyone,

    I am Lisa Poff and I am the Program Coordinator for the Indiana Deafblind Services Project. I have worked on the Project with Karen for 20 years. I am very interested in learning more about AT – We always have LOTS of questions about what kinds of technology is available to help students who are deafblind.

  4. Tina,
    Hello! This is Beth Davis and I am a Life Skill’s teacher in Richmond, IN. I serve a variety of students with various needs. Some of those needs are definitely technology oriented and I am interested in looking for new ways to make their environment more accessible. I have 3 children of my own, all actively involved in school and sports. My husband is a pilot who’s gone a lot, so I’m always juggling as most of you are doing!
