Price: $250.00


Presented by Paula Maddox Roalson<

High-tech assistive technology devices may be required for students with disabilities to access the academic and social curricula. Tablets, apps, laptops, and real-time closed captioning are on many parents' wish lists for their children. But IEP teams must first investigate whether those devices, especially those receiving all the hype, are appropriate and necessary for individual students to receive FAPE.

Special education attorney Paula Maddox Roalson covers the legal requirements surrounding the use of assistive technology in special education programs while using recent case examples to provide you practical guidance to incorporate AT into programs for eligible students.

You and your staff will learn:

  • The IDEA's definition of assistive technology
  • The basics of an AT evaluation
  • Whether a school district may factor cost into consideration
  • Who selects the device when the district and parent disagree on the brand, make or model
  • Who provides training on the device
  • The need to incorporate the AT device into the IEP
  • And more
