Once the need for an AT assessment has been identified, teams may desire a framework or assessment tool to guide them through the process of identifying needs, feature-matching, data collection methods and implementation. This module will introduce the reader to a variety of tools that can be used to guide this process. Some of the tools offer guidance for every step of the assessment process while others address specific components such as evaluation of AT supports for reading or writing. Further, this module aims to begin the discussion of system-wide integration of AT supports and services.
