Assistive Technology and the IEP

If, following an assessment, assistive technology is considered appropriate to meet a student’s needs, then it must be included in the IEP.  Terms such as accommodations, supports, program modifications or supplementary aids and services are some terms that may be written on the IEP to describe a piece of assistive technology.

For more information about how assistive technology can be incorporated into the IEP, view “Assistive Technology and the IEP” written by the Center on Technology and Disability.

The National Center for Learning Disabilities also offers information on incorporating assistive technology into the IEP for students with learning disabilities.  Assistive Technology (AT) for Students with Learning Disabilities.
