AACES Conference On-Demand Session

QIAT Strategies for Families & Professionals Working to Identify Appropriate Assistive Technology Tools & Strategies

Drag to resize
There are many ways to “do it right” when looking for Assistive Technology tools and strategies to support atypical learners. It is important for families and professionals to have a shared vision of how they will work together to support students however, it can be challenging to develop that vision. What are the critical areas of the AT process? Who should do what?
During this session we will explore resources from the Quality Indicators for Assistive Technology, QIAT, (pronounced ‘quiet’). Participants will be given the opportunity to explore Quality Indicators for the areas of: Consideration, Assessment, Documentation of AT on the IEP Implementation, Evaluation of Effectiveness, Transition, Administrative Support and AT Professional Development. In each of these areas we will look at tools for self-evaluation that can guide growth.
