Tool - Error: Reference source not found:      

2

Determine how the student and others will be trained to use the tool.


     

3

Determine when and how tools and strategies will be implemented and under what conditions.


     

4

Determine strategies, accommodations or modifications which will be used to increase successful implementation of the AT tool.


     




5

Describe cues to be used to support student's learning and success with the AT tool(s). Include strategies for fading cues.


     


6

Describe the major area(s) of expected change (Communication, participation, productivity) and ways in which change is expected to occur (independence, rate, accuracy, quantity, frequency, spontaneity, duration, etc.).


     


7

Describe the data points that show successful participation in this activity or use of this skill for this student in an observable, measurable way. What is the minimum performance criterion for success?


     


8

Determine what, when, how and by whom data will be collected and analyzed for evidence of change?


     





9

Under what conditions will this plan be modified? How and by whom will these decisions be made?

Team Member(s) Collecting Data:            



Data collected will vary significantly according to the type of Assistive Technology that is being trialed. For example, for a communication device the trial will be how many times the student successfully presses the correct button or key out of all the attempts, and the total number of attempts would be at least 80 – 100. Use either of the Data Collection Sheets provided below or create your own data collection tool.
