Assistive Technology in Oklahoma Public Schools: A Service Delivery Model for Rural Schools.
Doty, Antonette; Gray, Sylvia
The Assistive Technology Program for Oklahoma Public Schools was developed to assist Oklahoma public schools in meeting the challenges of assistive technology service delivery as mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The program is a collaborative effort between the Oklahoma State Department of Education's Special Education Services Division and the Assistive Technology Center of the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. The program serves as a resource in assisting all schools in the state, offering such services as information dissemination, systematic staff training, technical assistance, access to resources, and development of a statewide network of assistive technology resource teams. Project IMPACT AT Preschool (Improving Mobility, Positioning, and Communication through Assistive Technology) gives Oklahoma preschool teachers and therapists training in the use of assistive technology and an opportunity to assess the functioning of their preschool students with various assistive technology devices. The project offers a lending library of assistive devices and training resources, as well as training for preschool teams in the assessment and programming of preschool students with developmental delays. A project evaluation at six preschool sites outlined project benefits to students and teachers and barriers to classroom use of assistive technology. A program evaluation form for Project IMPACT AT Preschool is included. Contains 10 references. (CDS)
