AT and ACC in the IEP: A Guide for School Teams

AT and AAC in the IEP as presented on June 24th, 2021, at the AAC in the Cloud conference

Have you ever wondered how to document AT and AAC equipment/devices in the IEP? This presentation came about because as SLP’s working in the school systems my coworkers and I have spent hours discussing and comparing the big questions how, where, and when to document AT in the IEP. We wanted to make sure that we were complying with the laws, but not documenting something that could place us or our school districts in a difficult situation to comply with the specifications listed in the IEP. After much research and consulting with a state SLP, we created the PPT AT and AAC in the IEP. We have also included a Quick Reference Handout for future use when you are in a hurry. If you prefer to do a deep dive into the federal acts and regulations that guide the IEP process for AT consideration, you may want to review our resources and start your own journey.

Happy IEP writing,

Sabina and Saskia
