Assistive Technology: Key Considerations for Students With Disabilities

Price: $250.00

Presented by Vincent J. Varrassi

As more parents seek assistive technology evaluations for their children, IEP teams must understand why and how to consider students’ needs when making AT decisions. Experienced trainer and veteran educator Vincent Varrassi guides your staff through it all.

First, you learn about the different types of AT -- including speech-to-text, text-to-speech, word prediction and note-taking applications -- and how they can help students with disabilities address issues they face. Most importantly, your team members learn the framework for deciding how technology can help individual students better access their educational program, with guidance to:

  • Identify and answer fundamental questions that drive the AT consideration process
  • Assess a student’s need for AT by examining evaluations they already have
  • Find and evaluate AT recommendations and available products
  • Communicate more meaningfully with parents about the things AT can and cannot do to assist their child
  • And more!
