ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY TRAININGS

Assistive Technology Consideration…More Than a Checkbox

Assistive Technology (AT) consideration is more than a check box. It is a legal requirement of the IEP process. AT consideration requires the team to partake in a consistent decision-making process in relation to the student’s IEP goals and objectives.

Outcomes:

  1. Participants will be able to understand the law as it pertains to assistive technology and assistive technology consideration.
  2. Participants will know how to appropriately consider assistive technology for students.
  3. Participants will be able to list resources such as the QIAT and forms to assist with assistive technology consideration.
