The consideration of assistive technology for all students with an IEP is part of the IEP process. How can this be done consistently across IEP teams with fidelity and who participates in the decision-making process? Join us for a time of discussion and sharing of resources to explore how to empower our teams to support students with the assistive technology needed to remove learning barriers. In this AT Chatter, SETC will introduce self-paced modules through eLearning for Educators entitled Assistive Technology (AT) in the Schools. These modules allow educators to earn clock hours while learning about assistive technology resources to improve AT consideration, assessment, and implementation.
- Participants will be empowered to support IEP teams in considering assistive technology for students.
- Participants will engage in discussion to share resources on AT processes across Washington State school districts.
- Participants will access on-demand training resources on AT consideration, assessment, and implementation.
