Transition plans for students who use assistive technology address the ways the student’s use of assistive technology devices and services are transferred from one setting to another. Assistive technology transition involves people from different classrooms, programs, buildings, or agencies working together to ensure the student’s continuity of AT use. Self-advocacy, advocacy and independence are critical issues for AT transition planning.
If you need resources to support effective AT services for students in transition, or if you are not sure about your role in the local team process, this session will be of value. The QIAT Leadership Team will share the Quality Indicators for Transition for students who use AT. We will provide strategies to support effective practice, and principles to guide improvement at the building or district or level.
