Assistive Technology UPDATED 7/15/16 Assistive Technology
  

"For people without disabilities,

technology makes things easier. For

people with disabilities, technology

makes things possible"

IBM 1991

Technology, which ranges from low tech to high tech, can open the doors for children with any kind of disability.  Because motor skills impact everything a student does in school, OT's and PT's are often asked for ideas/help to adapt and/or recommend assistive technology across the curriculum.  Most districts have a team that addresses AT needs, but this page will provide some additional resources, adaptations, and ideas for all areas of the school environment.

Assistive technology is a device and/or service that is determined by an IEP team

to be necessary to provide a student with educationally relevant and necessary

access to a free and appropriate education (FAPE) in a least restrictive

environment (LRE). Assistive technology services must be considered for any

student receiving special education.

IDEA, 1997 

“Any item, piece of equipment, or product system whether acquired commercially off the

shelf, modified or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional

capabilities of individuals with disabilities.“

“Technology-Related Assistance for Individual

with Disabilities Act (Tech Act)”
