Assistive Technology (AT)

  • Crystal Lake Elementary District 47 strives to provide tools to empower students to access their education and increase their independence. The use of tools, such as Universal Design for Learning tools (UDLs), to help students access their education is known as Assistive Technology. Each year, assistive technology is considered for all students with a 504 or IEP but AT is available to any student who may benefit from its use. When a student goes through the AT evaluation process, a variety of low- and high-tech tools are considered. For more information about these tools and the evaluation process, see the FAQs and Assistive Technology Tools & Resources sections. If you have questions or concerns related to AT, please contact your child's case manager.
