What is an assistive technology team?

Many Virginia school divisions have assistive technology teams. These AT teams can:

  • Assist with developing AT policies and procedures
  • Identify AT needs and make recommendations for the purchase of specific AT
  • Maintain an inventory of the division’s AT equipment
  • Provide AT assessments
  • Support students and professionals in learning how to use AT
  • Provide professional development to the division staff and families on AT 

VDOE's T/TAC at VCU supports the development and ongoing growth of assistive technology teams in Regions 1 and 8. To learn more about developing an AT team, check out these frequently asked questions for AT teams
