ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY GUIDLINES FOR KENTUCKY SCHOOLS

Kentucky

~~“The purpose of this document is to assist teachers and administrators in identifying and meeting student needs for assistive technology as provided by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and to offer specific directions on classroom implementation. It includes a thorough description of issues to consider from the start of screening through the provision of assistive technology and on-going evaluation of its use for educational purposes. Connections are given to related resources and programs which can enhance access and utilization of assistive technology. Until recently, there have been few materials available to help educators make critical decisions in the provision and application of assistive technology. This document represents a compilation of ideas and information devised by those in Kentucky and elsewhere who strive to use assistive technology to improve accessibility and acceptance for children and youth with disabilities.”
