101C: Assistive Technology – Preparing for Assistive Technology Beyond High School (TLI 2021)

Preparing for Assistive Technology Beyond High School


Presented by: Christa LeGray, MA CCP-SLP, is a Research Instructor and AT Specialist with the Center for Inclusive Design and Engineering at the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus.

Session Description

Assistive Technology (AT) devices and services help people with disabilities participate more independently within their home, work, and educational settings. Students who have access to AT resources that meet their needs will be more successful both in high school and as they plan for their futures. Transition planning is designed to prepare a student for post-secondary educational, employment, and/or community environments and it is important that AT be a part of that process. Students, their families, and their education teams need to carefully consider, plan and document AT needs during this time. Specific strategies to help students successfully transition with AT will be shared.


  1. Compare one or more differences in expectations, resources, and processes for AT from high school to the community.
  2. Describe 3 considerations for successful transitions from high school for students with AT.
  3. Identify at least 3 free resources to improve the transition process for students using AT in the high school setting.
