Did You Know?
- Assistive technology (AT) may include any piece of equipment, software, or product that improves, increases, or maintains functional abilities of individuals with disabilities.
- Every IEP meeting requires the team (which includes parents) to consider whether a child with a disability needs assistive technology.
- Know your rights so you can request assistive technology for your child, if needed. Below are resources to inform and assist you.
