Assistive Technology is any piece of equipment, product, or system that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of a child with a disability (e.g., a communication device, FM unit, computer access). Assistive technology service is any service that directly helps a child with a disability select, acquire, or use an assistive technology device. Any assistive technology or services your child requires must be listed in his/her IEP. If you think your child needs assistive technology, you may request an assistive technology evaluation.
