Assistive Technology Parent Support Guide for Part C (0-3) Services

This guide was developed in partnership between the Nebraska PTI and the ATP Education Program. It is designed to help parents/families understand assistive technology, the purpose of assistive technology, and the importance of assistive technology within the context of Part C (0-3) services. Examples of potential assistive technology across multiple domains are provided. Key questions for parents/families are suggested for three stages that may be encountered during Part C services: (1) thinking about assistive technology needs; (2) thinking about assistive technology once the child has devices/systems written into his/her IFSP; and (3) transitioning from Part C to Part B services.
