If you or your organization works with children and youth we at ABLE Tech would like for you to reach out and encourage local schools and school personnel to sign up for:
Oklahoma ABLE Tech Free Assistive Technology Team Training for Oklahoma Schools
Teams will learn about innovative AT, accessible educational materials and print disabilities, accommodation ideas, assistive technology and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act AT feature-matching and accommodation ideas.
You are welcome to take advantage of this great resource - you can be a team of one or have other staff in your organization join you.
The Memorandum of Agreements for FY16 which will begin October 1st has been mailed to each organization. We will discuss the changes in the MOA requirements at the September 8th partner meeting.
Partner Meeting is set for September 8th from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Seretean Wellness Center in Stillwater.
I will be mailing each organization an OSU Guest Parking Permit that you MUST use September 8th. OSU has a brand new residence hall in the 1400 block of Hall of Fame. The majority of the parking lot north of the Seretean Wellness Center is now designated for “Residential Hall Permit.” You will not be able to park in that area of the lot when you come to campus. The permit I am mailing to you can be used in Blue Staff Parking lots and Overflow Parking lots. To the right is a map which shows the approved spaces that are close to the Wellness Center for the permits that are being mailed.
Let me know if you need more than one permit per organizational site!

NewView helps an energetic 10 year old
NewView has assisted a 10 year old who is full of energy and knows everything there is to know about dogs. She is blind and has received assistive technology services through NewView Oklahoma. The student‘s mother wanted her to learn how to use and iPad and Refreshabraille 18 from Oklahoma ABLE Tech’s program and also set her up for Bookshare.
Through her membership at Bookshare, she is able to download books in braille format as well as auditory format. The RFB18 is a Bluetooth linked to her iPad and she is then able to use the device with and without auditory output. This allows her to practice her braille skills without the auditory input. The toggle switch lets her navigate around the screen on the iPad. She loves the device and it is very portable for her life on the move. She can also use the notes within the iPad or even the iA Writer app with voice over to practice spelling and reading using the RFB18. This allows for others to see her work on the screen.
Through the loan of the equipment through Oklahoma ABLE Tech, we were able to see what technology best fit her needs. She was able to obtain a RFB!* through the AIM Center at the Oklahoma Library for the Blind to use with her iPad.
