Setting it Up and Making it Work: Strategies to Improve School-Based AT Services


April 23, 2020, Online


Developing, growing, and managing systems of assistive technology (AT) service delivery that comply with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), meet the on-going needs of students, and that incorporate educational best practices can certainly be challenging for professionals in schools. Those who are designated to provide AT expertise are sometimes left to construct or improve a service delivery paradigm while juggling many other professional responsibilities. The potential burden of being the “AT Expert” may also result in separation from other stakeholders vital to AT success including other staff, related service providers, and families. Additionally, because mechanisms for addressing AT needs can vary widely between school districts throughout the country, AT service providers must often create programs that meet the unique needs of their setting without adequate models to follow.

For school-based professionals providing AT services in many different capacities, taking a leadership role in developing, analyzing, and refining service delivery models can be critical for improving both job effectiveness and satisfaction. This webinar will address specific and practical steps individual AT providers or teams can take to drive progress in their programs, empower students, staff and families, and achieve concrete goals.
