Maryland's mATch up tool helps teams consider AT for the IEP!

The Maryland Department of Education, in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University, developed the mATch up tool to help IEP teams consider AT options in a comprehensive systematic fashion.

How does it work? It is intuitive and simple! To begin, the team selects from eight identified need areas. Once the need area is selected, a new page opens further dividing the need into a subset of of necessary skills. The team then selects the skill subset needing attention, and a range of AT options are provided from no/low tech to high tech. Thanks to the INDATA blog for this tip!
