    • How to consider AT
    • How to conduct AT assessments
    • How to acquire and provide AT tools/systems
    • How to implement AT effectively
    • How to evaluate the effectiveness of AT for a child/student
  • Access to a Statewide Assistive Technology Equipment Loan Pool (i.e., AT4ALL.com) – IFSP/IEP teams may (at no cost) borrow AT tools/systems for up to 60 days to use
    • for assessing potential AT solutions that would meet child’s/student’s needs OR
    • as a short-term loan while waiting for a child’s/student’s existing AT to be repaired/replaced.
