1.2. All prior assessment data is collected including medical data for vital concerns, vision and hearing reports, information about technology equipment currently in use, background information reguarding any related services provided previously for the student

2. Step 2 Conducting an Assistive Technology Assessment

2.1. An Assistive Technology assessment is based on information gathered including students records and assessments as well as skills

2.2. The Assistive Technology assessment includes several methods of obtaining formal and informal data required to create a plan tailored specifically to the child's needs and abilities

3. Step 3 The Indivudalized Education Team

3.1. The Indivudalized Education Team gathers to provide multidisciplinary data required to create an indivudalized education plan (IEP)
