How to Try Assistive Technology with Your Infant, Toddler, or Preschooler

This guide helps parents objectively evaluate and trial assistive technology to determine if it is beneficial to their child’s skills development. Parents are taught the top five factors to observe as their child is trying new assistive technology, those factors being: the quality of their child’s improvement, differences in the quantity of work or play, differences in the amount of time or effort the child spends on a given skill, any changes in their behavior, and any changes in their level of independence.
