Assistive technology (AT) and accessible instructional materials can provide equitable opportunities for students to access the curriculum. The purpose of assistive technology (AT) is to identify what supports and options are required in order for a student to make progress towards his/her goals. This course will introduce participants to the SETT framework, a four-part model intended to encourage collaborative decision making for AT considerations. The SETT framework is a guideline for gathering data to make effective AT decisions. SETT is an acronym examining: Student’s abilities and concerns, Environments in which the student experiences barriers, Tasks which are difficult for the student to accomplish (IEP goals), and Tools that may be useful to accomplish the identified task(s).
