iPad Training Description 
Do you know people who are swept away in the iPad tidal wave? Are you curious about how to make the iPad more user-friendly for people with disabilities? This presentation will focus on how to make the iPad user-friendly for all individuals. First, we will explore accessories for the iPad, including stands, cases, speakers, switches, etc. that can make the iPad more accessible. Then, there will be hands-on time with the built-in accessibility features on the iPad’s OS5 operating system. And, if there is time, there will be an opportunity for you to share your favorite apps for individuals with disabilities. Come, learn, and share!

iPad Training Note: The AT Network will provide a limited number of iPad 2s with the OS 5 operating system for participants to use. If you have your own iPad 2, please bring it and make sure to update it with OS 5 before you come.
