AT Assessment to Support Transition

What process do you use to assess accommodations for your students/clients?

Tools/Scaffolds/models help us communicate more effectively, whether it is:
1. Client to Provider/Counselor
2. Team member to team member/ agency to agency - Collaboration is what it's about!

Purpose today:
1. Share the SETT model as one tool to use for assessing accommodations and supports, using the decision making guide and AT checklist - adapted for use with butcher paper on wall to record ideas/data and translate to Excel Spreadsheets (Samples and templates included in presentation)
2. Share resource materials online for further exploration
3. Tools for YOUR toolbox (linked below)
