Practical Uses of QIAT: Session 2 - School districts using QIAT to improve assistive technology services

Free Webinar from AbleNet University

The Quality Indicators for Assistive Technology Services (QIAT) describe the characteristics of high-quality assistive technology services as they are provided in school settings.  The eight service areas include: Consideration of AT Needs, Assessment of AT Needs, AT in the IEP, AT Implementation, Evaluation of Effectiveness of AT, AT in Transition, Administrative Support for AT, and AT Professional Development.  For more than 15 years the indicators have been used in a variety of ways to assess assistive technology services and guide improvement efforts.

This AbleNet University webinar series will describe practical ways that parents, families and advocates; school districts and; state and regional programs use the QIAT Indicators and resources on behalf of children with disabilities who use assistive technology.

Session 2: How can the QIAT help school districts as they work to offer high quality assistive technology services aligned to federal, state and local mandates? How can QIAT be used as a tool for assistive technology service providers as they evaluate and work to continually improve their services?  This session will address these questions and offer many examples of ways that QIAT has been used at a school-district level.
