Assistive Technology (AT) Assessment

An assistive technology (AT) assessment is a collaborative process through which a support team or education team — perhaps including certified technology specialists and other related services professionals — identify technologies that can improve a person’s performance, access, participation, and independence. An AT assessment is an ongoing process, not a one-time event, designed to match individuals with assistive technology, as well as implement and measure the most effective solutions for academic and/or career success.

Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) assessment

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) includes various modes of communication:  facial expressions, gestures, sign language, picture symbols, writing, and voice-output devices.   AAC provides a way for individuals who have difficulties communicating to express thoughts, needs, wants, and ideas.  Those that may benefit from AAC include:

  • Individuals who have a few words or sounds but are delayed in their normal speech
  • Individuals with significant speech delays who have difficulties coordinating the movements necessary to produce sounds and move from one sound to another
  • Individuals experiencing difficulties with their vocal cords which may cause limited or no voice
  • Individuals who have had a stroke, and who struggle to come up with the right word

Learn more about an AAC assessment by downloading our handout. For questions and to schedule an AAC assessment contact Darcy Regan, M.A., CCC-SLP at dregan1@uwyo.edu or (307) 766-2932.
