Virginia Department of Education's Assistive Technology Network
VDOE's Assistive Technology Network of Virginia addresses priorities of VDOE with centralized coordination, implementation, and dissemination of information about the laws which define AT devices and services, the process of consideration of AT by Individualized Education Program (IEP) teams, and AT assessment and resources. It includes a section on Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).
In support of these priorities, the network has several initiatives which include:
- Developing resources and documents for AT considerations and assessment
- Supporting and training regional AT teams which includes the annual Virtual Techknowledgy Conference
- Integrating AT solutions across curriculum
