Description:

AT consideration, AT assessment and providing documentation of AT within an IEP are all federal and state mandates but they are also a practical process that involves a team of people. This series of webinars will dive deeper into how to create a functional AT team and clear AT processes. This set of webinars will utilize the Quality Indicators for Assistive Technology (QIAT) to help AT teams evaluate strengths and challenges within their AT & IEP processes in order to develop a concrete plan for improving AT team processes.

Objectives

Participants will learn how to evaluate how AT is incorporated into the IEP by IEP teams

Participants will identify specific behaviors to improve documentation of AT within the IEP within their districts.

 

Participants will be equipped with resources to support improvement practices around documenting AT in the IEP
