What is Assistive Technology?

We offer learners academic support by determining which of the most current technology tools can ensure that your child has a level playing field in which to participate with their peers. Assistive technology does not replace intervention service or great teaching, it simply gives your child another avenue of learning information that is easily accessible, affordable, and will grow with them in college and in life.

When Considering an Assistive Technology Evaluation:

The assistive technology assessment process as a team effort. The assistive technology evaluator should make recommendations based on your child’s unique need for accommodations, adaptations, devices, and services.

  • All assistive technology assessments include a functional assessment in the student’s customary environments, such as the classroom, lunchroom, playground, home, community setting or workplace.
  • Assistive technology assessments, including trials, are completed within reasonable timelines.
  • Recommendations from assistive technology assessments are based on data about the student, environment and tasks.
  • The assessment provides the IEP team with clearly documented recommendations that guide decisions about the selection, acquisition and use of AT devices and services. : Assistive technology needs are reassessed anytime changes in the student, the environments and/or the task result in the student’s needs not being met with current devices and/or services.
