ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY (AT) is available to help individuals with many types of disabilities in a variety of areas of need:
If your child is of school age, you need to work with your Child Study Team to see if AT is an appropriate tool for your child. If your child is older, there are resources available to you to help guide you through the process. You will want to learn how to choose AT tools that are dependable and consistent. Keep in mind your child’s abilities when making a choice, and remember to select AT that is tailored to your child's needs and abilities. It is also important to choose AT that can be utilized in school as well as the home, if needed. Staff and parent training are equally important… you need to make sure usage is consistent in order for it to be effective!
Below you will find some great resources for information, equipment, support, and accessibility options for individuals with disabilities.
