Abstract

The concept of Assistive Technology (AT) can be overwhelming for many families and Individualized Education Program (IEP) teams. The purpose of this article is to provide parents with useful information about AT and how to go about addressing it as part of their child’s IEP. We also want to demystify AT and remind everyone that it does not mean just a computer or other communication device. AT is in fact very broad, and there should be a systematic process in place to document its consideration and use as part of the IEP.
