Podcast: Ira David Socol Interview with Melinda. May 9, 2008

Join LD Live! host Melinda Pongrey and special guest,
Ira David Socol
Friday, May 9 at 9 am PDT

In his blog, SpeEdChange Ira Socol writes powerfully from his experiences with the education system. A Special Education Technology Scholar at Michigan State University, Ira presents workshops on how to create access to classroom materials and every school, parent, and student need to read his article, "Toolbelt for the Lifespan: Learning How to Learn Assistive Technology"

You can't really claim to be educating all of your students if academic (and school life) materials are not all accessible. So write your plan down, and get yourself started. - Ira Socol

An author, Ira has two published books of fiction. His recent book, The Drool Room, is written from the point of view of a young man who doesn't mesh with the school system.
