Services at School

Children from birth to age 21 who experience a disability are eligible for ATP services.

Educators, students, parents, therapists, and service providers should contact ATP. ATP Technology Specialists visit schools and homes at no cost and provide:

  • Training to individuals and groups on equipment and how it works

  • Consultations to identify appropriate solutions

  • Technical Support (troubleshooting and setting up equipment)

  • Demonstrations to individuals and groups on the features and use of equipment

A loan pool of devices to try before you buy and to help fill a short term need are available. Contact ATP and visit at4all.com You may also search for items for use at home and work. 

Assistive technology must be covered as part of the Individual Education Plan (IEP) and Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) process for every child. The IEP and IFSP Team must consider whether the assistive technology is necessary for the student to:

  • Achieve education or social goals
  • Gain meaningful benefit from the education
  • Make reasonable progress in the least restrictive environment

ATP staff provide guidance to the IEP and IFSP Team on assessing and selecting appropriate assistive technology.
