This module will assist teams in using the WATI assessment process to assess a student's need for assistive technology (AT) to participate in recreation and leisure activities. The WATI assessment process systematically progresses through information gathering, decision-making, and implementation planning. The WATI Assistive Technology Decision-Making Guide supports the team with guiding questions designed to yield information about the student, environment(s) and tasks. This module is Part I of two parts. Part II, Recreation & Leisure - WATI - Part II, further explores a range of low- to high-tech solutions for students participating in recreation and leisure activities.
