Are you searching for the right assistive technology (AT) for your child? Here’s a checklist to help you decide whether a device or tool is going to work well for your child.
As you consider various AT tools, make sure your child is part of the process. Most AT companies offer free demos and trial subscriptions. You may find that your child is more comfortable—or less comfortable—with a tool than you expect. If the school is choosing the AT, ask them to let your child have a “test drive” first.
