Hi folks. Welcome to “Accessibility Minute”, your weekly look at Assisitive Technology—those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs.
In the world of US public education, there is a process that helps students with disabilities get the supports they need. A group of education professionals work with the student and family member to create an Individualized Educational Plan or IEP, which outlines the services and supports that are needed to help a child succeed in the classroom. While developing the plan, the IEP team is required to consider the need for assistive technology -- technology that sometimes crucial to a student's success. Check our show notes for a link to learn more about AT in the IEP process.
