Decision Making and Referral Process

Assistive Technology (AT) is used to support a student's IFSP, IEP, and Transition Plan. At least one person on the IEP Team should have adequate knowledge about AT. The decision-making process is a collaborative team effort. IEP teams should record and document the deliberation that leads to the decision made, regardless of the determined outcome. The team should be transparent in their AT decision-making process. Performance and progress data should be reviewed and interpreted at regular intervals to determine ongoing AT needs.
