Level: Beginner
Grades: All
In this session participants will learn strategies for implementing a quality assistive technology model. Assistive technology can profoundly impact educational success among students with disabilities. In 1998, the quality indicators for assistive technology were developed by a key group of individuals to improve implementation of the assistive technology requirements of IDEA. These indicators have been adopted and used as the gold standard by many school districts throughout New Hampshire and the United States. This session will discuss how to implement these quality indicators to achieve success. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss questions to ask themselves and their teams as they begin implementation. Real life scenarios will be reviewed as well as a discussion of pitfalls to avoid. When attendees leave this session they will have the knowledge to begin implementation of a quality assistive technology model to support learners.
