  • Assistive Technology Forms

    PPS Assistive Technology Team consists of specialists with backgrounds in occupational therapy, teaching and speech-language pathology. Their mission is to provide best practice to support the success of learners in our district in the areas of assistive technology (AT) and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).

They work in partnership with the building educational team.

    Assistive Technology Used in the Home

    When an AT/AAC tool is checked out to a student on a Long Term Loan, and it is determined that the student requires access to the tool at home for IEP goals or homework needs, the district and the parent/guardian must enter into a written agreement.

    Private Equipment

    ”Privately owned equipment” means assistive technology equipment owned by the parent/guardian or assistive technology equipment not owned by the parent/guardian but provided by the parent for the student to use at school. When privately owned equipment is being used at school, PPS and the parent/guardian must enter into an agreement about how the equipment will be used at school, how the parent/guardian can revoke consent, and how PPS will take reasonable precautions to protect the privately owned equipment.
