Assistive Technology (AT) & Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Assessment
EASTCONN’s AT and AAC specialists are available to assess your student’s needs in their customary learning environment and identify potential AT and/or AAC solutions from low- to high- tech. AT and AAC solutions may support students’ abilities to access, participate and progress in the general curriculum and may support maximal independence when performing tasks in their learning environment. Assessments require districts to complete EASTCONN’s Student Information Guide for AT or AAC. The Assessment includes review of relevant educational records, consultation with the educational team, trial use of potential AT/AAC solutions, generation of an assessment report and presentation of the findings at a PPT.
Benefits: AT & AAC Assessments explore potential solutions for your student that will provide them with access, participation and progress in the general curriculum. Assessments include review of the completed EASTCONN Student Information Guide, staff consultation, student observation in the classroom environment and trials of potential AT/AAC solutions in the school setting. The district is provided with a written report that details potential AT/AAC solutions to address areas of concern, as well as recommendations for implementation. Findings are presented at the PPT.
