Technology and Transition: What Should IEP Teams be Considering?

Room 500
Kristin Leslie, Special Education Technology Center

Assistive technology consideration in the transition years involves the IEP team as well as people from different programs, buildings, and agencies working together to ensure continuity. Teaching the student self-advocacy throughout the consideration process builds skills that can extend into higher education and job settings. Planning for the use of real-world technology and documenting the plan is likely to ensure that the student has access to meaningful technology tools beyond the high school years.
