AT and the IEP

Are you a parent or family member of a child with an IEP? Do you work with students with disabilities and their families? This family-oriented webinar will provide valuable ideas on how to advocate for assistive technology devices and services designed to help students be successful at school. Among the questions that Ms. Lightner will address are:

  • What is assistive technology?
  • How do I learn what types of AT might help my child?
  • How do I get AT added to my child's IEP?
