In general, if you change schools, your child’s assistive technology device stays with the school that originally provided it. This is the rule whether you move across the country or to the other side of town.
In some cases your school district might be willing to sell the device to you or transfer it to the new school. You may want to raise this possibility with your child’s current school.
But keep in mind that stores may sell new devices for less money. Also, if you buy a device from your child’s school, this means you’ll be responsible for maintaining and repairing it.
Your child’s new school district needs to provide him with a free and appropriate public education. So chances are good you’ll be able to get a similar device at the new school.
But if you’re concerned or if you really want to maintain access to a particular device, you may want to consider buying one on your own. If you decide to go this route, do some research to see if you can get any financial assistance for this purchase.
