The intended result of this project is to establish a working resource guide for the best practice of the Assistive Technology (AT) integration process into a specific rural Kindergarten through 12th grade public school. The supporting resources of this project come from many peer edited research articles and I welcome you to read it. Click HERE to read my paper. The methodology behind the project was to incorporate a wealth of existing information that originated with permission from Laura Taylor, Michigan’s Integrated Technology Supports Technology Integration Specialist. (MITS: a statewide resource focused on reducing barriers for students who struggle.) The project also includes various other resources that display similar information in multiple ways for IEP team members to learn from and to utilize as Assistive Technology decisions are planed for and intitiated within various plans of action.
The icons with links below support IEP team decision-makers to properly consider AT and how it applies to individual students.
