Assistive Technology Consideration

Did you know that ALL students receiving Special Education MUST be considered for Assistive Technology (AT) at every IEP meeting? Are you aware that students on a 504 plan may also be entitled to AT? Are you unsure about what AT is, how it might help your child, and how the IEP team makes decisions about which students need it? Join us at this workshop to learn more about your child’s right to AT and the necessary steps school teams must take to appropriately consider it. Get informed and be prepared to take an active role in this discussion at your child’s next IEP meeting!
