Assistive Technology

The Assistive Technology program in the Green Hills AEA is designed to support local IEP and IFSP teams as they provide assistive technology services and devices to individuals from birth to 21 years of age.  The Regional Assistive Technology Specialists serve as a resource to these local teams as they work to integrate assistive technology into the student or child’s life, in a climate of collaboration, creativity, shared leadership, and mutual respect.

The Regional Assistive Technology Specialists also provide collaboration on assessments of individuals with disabilities as they relate to assistive technology needs, including a functional evaluation of the individual in the classroom environment. The Regional AT Specialists also provide information on the purchasing, leasing or obtaining of assistive devices for individuals with disabilities.
