Consideration of AT Needs (K-12)

Consideration of a student’s need for assistive technology (AT) devices and services is required during the development of every Individualized Educational Program (IEP) and every Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) for children with disabilities from birth through transition to post-secondary life. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) requires that each team that plans for the education of a child with a disability document any AT devices and/or services the child may need.
Educators report that they continue to struggle with knowing how to implement this requirement. The Consideration Quality Indicators can help teams and agencies to understand and plan how to address AT during an IEP meeting.
This session will use the Consideration indicators and suggest strategies for effective consideration during IEP meetings.
We will suggest options to support effective practice, and principles to help districts or building level teams ensure that a student’s need for AT is considered in a meaningful way.
Following the session participants will receive:
- A certificate of attendance
- A 10% discount on any AbleNet Assistive Technology products
