SLP & Special Education SIG

The MassCUE Speech/Language Pathologists (SLP) and Special Educators SIG has a set purpose and mission to promote the use of technology to reach the learning needs of students with communication disorders and learning disabilities. The SLP & Special Education SIG is for Speech/Language Pathologists and Special Educators.  The goal is to provide information on ways to use technology to support student abilities to communicate, access curriculum, learn, participate in academic and social experiences, increase student independence and preparedness for transition through the secondary education and onward to post-secondary education and careers. Ideas for meetings will be generated by the membership.

About MassCUE Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

MassCUE Special Interest Groups (SIGs) represent a growing network of connected educators, serving every grade level and subject area. Our objective is to transform education by sharing, collaborating and providing professional growth opportunities that affect best practices.

We encourage new SIGs to consider focusing on using 21st Century tools to promote critical thinking and globalization. No matter the type of SIG, the focus should be to develop pedagogy that integrates technology, improving teaching and learning. MassCUE SIGs provide the opportunity for educators to achieve this goal throughout our organization and state.
