M.C. v. Antelope Valley Union High School District
Determining the supports and services required to satisfy a student's unique needs can be a difficult process. Under the Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA), schools have a duty to "consider the communication needs of the child" and "consider whether the child needs assistive technology (AT) devices and services." If you believe that your child may benefit from supportive services such as AT or Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices, request an AT or AAC evaluation in writing.
Assistive technology or "AT" is a global term that is used to describe any device that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functioning of a person with a disability. This can include low tech devices such as picture cards or high tech devices that can detect an individual's eye movements and generate speech. It includes devices that can assist with an individual's hearing, mobility, vision, communication, and motor abilities.
