Joey DiRocco | AT in School

Joey DiRocco, 9, is a student in the Groton Dunstable School Disctrict. He was born with various conditions which make it difficult for him to see without his glasses. Having this visual impairment made it difficult for him to keep up with other students in class. Eventually, Joey’s teacher connected him to an Assistive Technology Specialist at ESMA, who worked with him to find solutions to improve his ability to participate in class. Learn more about how AT increased his independence in learning.
