Under the IDEA, a student must be receiving special education to receive related services. However, under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 the student may receive auxiliary services without qualifying for special education. Some examples of auxiliary aids and services include:

Notetaking device Specialized gym equipment
Digital/audio texts Assistive listening devices
TV enlargers Voice synthesizers
Braille calculators, printers, or typewriters Telecommunications devices
Closed caption decoders Interpreter

There is truly no wrong way to record AT in the IEP. The most important point is to capture the process the team plans to pursue or is currently pursuing and record pertinent information related to the student’s needs and use of AT.

Remember, it is best practice for schools/districts to develop operational procedures for how those completing IEPs should record AT in the IEP.
