Needs are currently being met, and goals are being addressed, without assistive technology. Assistive
Technology is not required at this time.
It is anticipated that adequate progress cannot be made without the support of Assistive Technology.

available to meet the needs of the student.

Have the physical, cognitive, linguistic and time needed to use the device been considered?
What are the focus, goals and objectives of the program (please see needs on page 1)?
Will the device increase curriculum access or skills in the student’s next environment?
