ABLE Tech provides forms, resources, and AT Consultations to guide educators in the provision of assistive technology to help students with disabilities reach their educational goals. We can assist you no matter where you are in the process.
Need assistance with choosing devices to consider, locating funding sources, or simply getting started? Request an AT Consultation and an ABLE Tech staff member will contact you through the assessment process.
ABLE Tech AT Consultations are modeled after the SETT Framework created by Dr. Joy Zabala and resources developed by the Wisconsin Assistive Technology Initiative (WATI).

AT Assessment Process
Step 1: Consideration and Referral
Consider whether the student is meeting his/her goals and whether assistive technology could improve student progress and outcomes.
Step 2: Problem Identification
Use SETT Framework to collect information about:
Step 3: Observation
Gather information regarding the student's activities in the environments in which he or she needs to participate.
Step 4: Solution Generation
A list of AT tools is generated by the team for trial with the student.
AT tool(s) obtained and used in customary environments to participate in identified tasks.
Step 5: Solution Selection
Data from trials are used to determine AT Tools (devices and services) that will be needed for the student.
AT is provided and documented in the IEP
Step 6: Implementation/Follow up
AT is implemented and student performance is monitored on an ongoing basis.
AT is meeting student's needs = Continue monitoring
AT no longer meets student's needs = Return to step 2 (ReSETT)
