Services at School (Birth-3, 3-21)

ATP Education Program's Purpose

The Assistive Technology Partnership Education (ATP/Ed) Program provides statewide services to IFSP and IEP team members working with children and students with disabilities birth to 21 who are receiving services within school systems.  All decisions related to assistive technology services and devices are made by the IFSP/IEP team.
