Updated Guidance Resources

ABLE Tech recently updated the technical assistance documents for providing Assistive Technology (AT) and Accessible Educational Materials (AEM) for children and youth. These documents serve as the framework for ABLE Tech AT team training workshops. For participants of previous AT Team Trainings, please note that pages 1, 30, and 61 of the AT-TA Doc for IDEA Part B have changed. You can print the pages from the website to add to your binder.

Registration Open for 2019-2020 AT Training Workshops

ABLE Tech was thrilled to participate in EngageOK sessions around the state this summer and excited to visit with many teachers who are hungry to learn about AT! The ABLE Tech FREE AT Assessment Workshop Series will provide the knowledge and tools educators need to provide AT for students with disabilities.

This 3-part series consists of one full day of training each month over three consecutive months. The series will be offered in Enid during the fall school semester and repeated in Shawnee during the spring. LEAs can use Project 613 funds to cover expenses for substitute teachers and travel.

AT for Daily Living

Assistive technology for daily living is any tool that helps an individual with everyday activities that are difficult or impossible to complete due to physical limitations or other disabilities. In school environments, AT can reduce the need for human assistance with dressing, feeding, and learning to cook and prepare foods.
