Assistive Technology Process and Forms
Step 1). Chat with An AT Specialist. Sometimes seemingly difficult problems have simple solutions. We want to help you and your student as much as we can, as soon as we can and make sure that you're on the correct path before you start filling out any paperwork.
Step 2). Provide us additional information about your student. There are a lot of specifics that are easy to miss on the phone. This mostly multiple choice Google Form makes sure your AT Specialist has the information they need to help select the best tool for your student.
Step 3). Trial the tool in the classrooms for 30 days. During this time we "fine tune" the process, figure out what works and what doesn't, and adjust tools and strategies accordingly. Trainings will be scheduled as needed.
Step 4). Complete the Implentation Plan. Once we figure out what is working, we want to write it down. The Implementation Plan is a 2 page template to do that.
Step 5). Complete the AT Trial Summary. This is a short Google Form that summarizes for the IEP what resulted from the trial. It also automatically generates an AT Report that can be presented at the IEP meeting. Your AT specialist will look it over and send you the completed AT Report once you've completed this.
Step 6). Hold an IEP and Present the Report. If the parents sign off on the amendment email the signature page to your AT Specialist. They will order any AT that needs to be ordered and you will be emailed when it's ready to be picked up.
