Family Information Guide to Assistive Technology and Transition Planning

Authors: Jacqueline Hess & Ana Maria Gutierrez


The purpose of this guide is to help families prepare for those times during which their child moves from one environment to another and from one developmental stage to another. The focus of the guide is on the role of assistive technology (AT) during those times – how to consider your child’s evolving AT needs, how to identify and address the AT issues that will arise as your child makes a transition, and how to develop and implement an AT transition plan.

The guide covers a wide range of transitions such as home to preschool, and preschool to school in addition to the transition from school to adulthood.

The guide is organized into the following five sections:
*Section 1: An Introduction to Transition Planning and Assistive Technology

*Section 2: How to Make a Successful Transition with Your Assistive Technology

*Section 3: Laws Governing Accommodations and Transition in Birth-12 and Postsecondary Settings

*Section 4: Glossary of AT and Transition Terms

*Section 5: Additional AT and Transition Resources
