Project Description:

Glodowski's "ABILITIES Newsletter" project develops friendships and partnerships between students of various ability levels. The collaborative project brings together mainstream students and students with moderate mental disabilities to create a school newsletter using various technology equipment. Adaptive technology and assistive equipment allows students who do not possess the capability to read, write or type on their own to use a computer. The ABILITIES Newsletter enhances the self-esteem of all students, especially students with disabilities, and puts the spotlight on students who often do not receive applause and glory.
