Mandated by federal law, school systems must now “consider” assistive technology in the planning process when addressing the academic needs of children with disabilities. Although many districts across the state of Tennessee have formally adopted policies and procedures to guide the implementation of assistive technology within their particular school system, the State Department of Education has not.
In an effort to offer guidance, Tennessee Association for Assistive Technology has created a uniform set of terms, definitions, and descriptions, as well as general policies and procedures to support consistency with the use of assistive technologies in the educational setting. These policies are intended to support, not replace those adopted by individual districts.
