A.T. Student Success Story
Bayleigh is a student in Woodward Public Schools. Over the years Bayleigh has struggled to see print, hindering her ability to read regular books like many of her peers. ABLE Tech partners with several organizations across the state, including NewView Oklahoma, to expand services to help Oklahomans make informed decisions about needed assistive technology (A.T.). See story on ABLE Tech's April Newsletter webpage.
