Episode 227,   May 02, 2023, 01:00 PM

Episode Brief: 
Courtney Burnett joins us today to walk us through everything assistive technology, ways to advocate for your student, and how to identify what communication devices may be available to your child. You’ll get some amazing nuggets of information from this one so be sure to have that notepad ready as we discuss all things AT at the IEP!

🔑 Key Takeaways:
Communication doesn’t always fit in the same box:
  • Defining AT & AAC: AT: Assistive Technology and AAC: Augmentative and Alternative Communication. Both can be accessed to support your child in school.
  • Make Your Child Part Of The Process: Pay attention to what devices or programs work for your student. Remind them that just because they learn differently that doesn’t make them less than anyone else!
  • Hire Support: You don’t have to be in high conflict to want support. The things you want and communicate to the IEP team are essential. A coach or partner can make sure everything is addressed at the IEP table.
