Overview of Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology can be anything from a simple, low-tech device, like magnifying glass, to a complex, high-tech device, such as a computerized communication system.  Your child’s IEP committee will list any requirements for assistive technology on their IEP.

Assistive Technology Services

Assistive technology services are any services that directly assist your child with selecting, getting, or using an assistive technology device.  These services also include evaluation for asssitive tehcnology and may include training for you, your child, or service provider in the use of a device.


The AT team provides resources to meet a student’s individual technology assessment needs.  Each student is assessed according to their needs.  The AT team is available for initial evaluations and for triennial reassessments.
