When the school and/or family believes a student may need assistive technology, the SETT Framework can be used to consider whether or not AT is needed and help teams go through the AT assessment process. Oklahoma ABLE Tech uses the SETT Framework documents available at joyzabala.com and case studies to teach teams how to use the SETT Framework for considering and evaluating students’ AT needs.
The QIAT is a free resource that supports schools in implementing quality AT services. ABLE Tech leads schools in learning about the eight quality indicators for AT as they relate specifically to Oklahoma, so that school districts can use promising practice in developing quality AT services for their students.
When a person is unable to communicate effectively using their speech, he or she may be a great candidate for using an augmentative or alternative communication system. ABLE Tech has a certified speech-language pathologist on staff to help train and support school personnel and families in choosing the right AAC system(s) for a student. Whether it is presenting on a specific speech-generating device or software or teaching about AAC in general, ABLE Tech has qualified staff to support your professional development needs.
Every two years, an updated Funding for AT Manual is produced by ABLE Tech and made available via the web in multiple, accessible versions. The information is up-to-date, specific to Oklahoma, and includes public and private funding sources. If you or your team needs in-depth guidance on funding AT for persons of any age, ABLE Tech has educated and experienced staff who can teach you how to approach funding AT in Oklahoma.
