Acquiring Assistive Technology
Once we have decided that technology is a need and we’ve explored options that we think might work we need to acquire the assistive technology. If the technology is determined to be a need and written into an IFSP or IEP then the school district is obligated to purchase the assistive technology.
But what if a parent wants to purchase technology for use at home? Or what if technology was not determined to be a need but it still might provides some benefit?
There are a variety of options available that will be explored in upcoming training materials that will explore funding options, do-it-yourself assistive technology and assistive technology reuse.
