Assistive technology (AT) can be a powerful tool to support students with disabilities. The consideration of assistive technology for all students with an IEP is a requirement. How can this be done with fidelity and who participates in the decision-making process? This session will provide educators and parents with resources on how to consider, assess, and implement assistive technology. Please join us as we delve into this topic through discussion, sharing resources and exploring how to empower our teams to support students who need assistive technology. SETC’s NEW on-demand self-paced course entitled Assistive Technology Processes: From Consideration to Implementation will be introduced in this session. This course includes modules on AT consideration, AT assessment and AT implementation, as well as practical application to fulfill the legal requirement around assistive technology.
- Gain resources to build AT processes within their school district
- Evaluate resources for consideration, assessment, and implementation of AT for students
