Assistive Technology Consultation


The MISD Assistive Technology (AT) team provides support to student-centered teams as they determine and plan for the assistive technology tools and strategies that will assist that student in the acquisition of their IEP goals and objectives, including Augmentative Communication (AC) tools and services. The AT Consultation team is committed to support student-centered teams as they assess, develop, plan and implement appropriate assistive technology strategies.

The AT Consultation was designed to assist local district teams in determining appropriate AT tools and services after they have completed the following steps:

  1. AT modifications have been generated, implemented and monitored by the IEP team with the support of the local district AT team as needed.
    - If these modifications were not effective or there is a need for a coordinated AT plan for the student, …
  2. A local district AT staffing has been convened.
  3. AT district follow-up staffings were convened on a regular basis to monitor student progress and adjust the AT plan as needed.

If the IEP team has completed the steps above and the pursuant accommodations/ modifications are still not effective, a formal request for consultation by the MISD AT Team using the Form 2 process may convene.
