• Identify Stakeholders and Create a Comprehensive Marketing Plan for UEB Transition
• Engage with Diverse Resources to Support UEB Implementation
• Identify and Procure Funding Resources for UEB Implementation
• Clearly Define Nemeth/UEB Direction for Arizona

Assistive Technology Assessment
Are you confused about your responsibility to provide assistive technology devices and services? Are you frustrated with delays in obtaining AT assessments from sources outside of your district or with the cost of those assessments? Are you looking for an efficient, effective way to determine a student’s need for assistive technology? Then this workshop is for you! This workshop will present a team-based model for completing assistive technology considerations and assessment. It begins with a brief overview of the laws related to the provision of assistive technology in the schools. A simple, easy-to follow system of AT considerations of IEP teams will be demonstrated. Then an assistive technology assessment process will be explained. This assessment process includes three stages: information gathering, decision making, and trial implementation. Specific, easy-to-follow forms will be provided. There will be opportunities for guided practice and feedback throughout the day.
