Do you think schools are as safe as they used to be?
As we know, there has been an increase in regards to in school bullying, cyberbullying, harassment, and suicide rates. Many factors are considered, such as our world's experience with COVID for a couple of years now. Students with disabilities are the most vulnerable population to become victims from bullying, cyberbullying, and etc. To decrease theseevents collaboration among the community and the right ways of using technology is key!
Based on this topic, I am so excited about these next two guests:
Maribeth Edmunds and Kevin Askew
This guest interview episode features two people who are committee members with me in the NJ Autism Think Tank. The guests are Kevin Askew and Dr. Maribeth Edmunds! Kevin Askew works for STOPit Solutions, a technology company that promotes safety in schools, work places, and beyond. He provides his perspective about ways technology can make schools a safer environment for all students, including students with disabilities. Dr. Maribeth Edmunds returns as a guest to provide her perspective as a former principal in the education system and parent of an autistic adult about technology impacting all students, including students with disabilities.
