Apple Education is offering at home help for teachers and parents of students with disabilities. It includes free one-on-one virtual coaching sessions from Apple Professional Learning specialists, developed to help educators hone their approach to online student learning and workflows.

In addition to the coaching sessions there is a series of virtual conferences presented by the Apple Education team. Each virtual conference runs for approximately 30 minutes and covers four topics across Presentations, Videos, Accessibility and Productivity.  More information: here.

AssistiveTouch is a built-in accessibility feature that lets the user adapt the iPad Multi-Touch screen to their physical needs. This video shows how to customise gestures and make other features accessible with just a touch from the AssistiveTouch menu. It helps increase productivity with new ways to search, take screenshots, and work with multiple apps.
