Assistive Technology (AT) Team
SWAAAC/Assistive Technology Team
In addressing the varying needs of individuals necessitating alternative, assistive or augmentative communication devices, the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) a State-Wide Assistive, Alternative, Augmentative Communication (SWAAAC). Since then, districts have developed their own SWAAC or Assistive Technology (AT) committees or teams trained in assistive, augmentative and alternative communication technologies. SWAAAC/AT services enable students with disabilities access and participate in educational opportunities.
Assistive technology is any tool that helps individuals function more effectively in order to gain access to educational opportunities. Students with disabilities that interfere with their communication, learning, social relationships, mobility and active participation are potential users.
Any member of a student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) team may initiate a referral to the AT team. An assessment is conducted with parent permission. For further information or to contact the AT Coordinator please call 719-327-2823.
