 Track Description

The following web-sites contain information and products to assist students with special needs in the school environment through the use of assistive technology.

An assistive technology (AT) device is any item used to maintain or improve the educational capabilities of a student with a disability.

What does the Law Require?

  • Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) mandates that AT devices and services be provided to a student with a disability, if needed for his/her educational program.
  • As part of the Individual Education Plan (IEP), consideration must be given to whether a student needs some kind of AT device in order to receive a free and appropriate education.
  • Any services a student is entitled to, including AT devices and services, must be funded by the district, not the student or his/her family, unless the family chooses to do so.
