Assistive Technology - Pointers for Parents

Back to Resources


From our friends at Education Tech Points and CATO - "Assistive Technology Pointers for Parents" is a guide to help parents of children with disabilities navigate the process of obtaining assistive technology (AT) in schools, as mandated by IDEA. It introduces the concept of "Education Tech Points," offering specific questions for parents to use when preparing for school discussions and when engaging with school staff. The guide is structured as a workbook, covering topics like understanding AT, parents' roles in decision-making, and each Education Tech Point stage. It also shares real-life stories of parents successfully obtaining AT for their children. This resource is valuable for anyone caring for a child with a disability, facilitating effective communication with schools.
