  • Assistive Technology (AT) is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of a student with disabilities.
  • Who is eligible to receive Assistive Technology assistance and how is that determined?

     

    • Students who have difficulty accessing educational materials or participating in their curriculum may be eligible to receive AT assistance as a supplementary service within an Individual Education Plan (IEP)
    • The specific need for AT assistance is determined by a team of individuals who are knowledgeable about the student’s needs and abilities, the demands of customary environments, the student’s educational objectives and tasks, and supports.
    • Consideration of AT is an ongoing process that occurs throughout the duration of the student’s education.
