True or False? 

Another A.T. and the IEP Pop Quiz!

"Low-tech" devices such as raised line paper or utensils with built up handles do not need to be listed in the IEP.

Answer: FALSE. ALL AT devices and services should be reflected in the IEP. Even low-tech and do-it-yourself items may meet the definition of AT: ANY device that assists a student with a disability (etc.)

Thanks to Amy Goldman and the Institute on Disabilities at Temple University for this "AT and the IEP" tip!
