Who is a candidate for technology devices or services?

Assistive technology specialists are available to help determine:

  • whether an assistive technology assessment may be appropriate,

  • what type and level of assessment is indicated,

  • any further involvement of the project staff in the assessment process, and

  • available options if assessment is not warranted.

The process of consideration usually involves:

  • observation of the student in the school, home or other settings,

  • review of school records, and

  • discussions with teachers, therapists, parents and caregivers.

All options will be discussed and an assessment plan will be formulated, if appropriate.
