Implementing AT

 Implementation focuses on ensuring the AT provided can be adequately used by the child within the environments he/she is actively engaged.

When evaluating how well the AT is being implemented, the following areas should be noted:

  • Identify the AT tools or systems that will be implemented.
  • Identify specific tasks for which the AT will be implemented.
  • Identify where the child will be using the device.
  • Verify how the AT correlates to the needs of the child.
  • Identify components of the AT that need to be maintained (charged, cleaned, replaced).
  • Ensure all persons working with the child and his/her AT are trained.
  • Determine who will customize the AT (when necessary).
  • Note information about how the child is using the AT.
  • Develop a contingency plan for temporary replacements (when necessary).
