At MMSD, Assistive Technology is anything that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of a student who has an identified disability. Assistive Technology is considered at an IEP meeting after the Present Level of Academic Achievement and Functional Performance has been written and appropriate goals/objectives have been developed. Assistive Technology may or may not involve diagnostic equipment and should first include exploration and documentation of low tech items, strategies/adaptations, and/or other techniques that have been utilized.
