AT & The IEP

 A powerful course to help parents advocate for assistive technology to be included in their child's IEP

The #1 Thing Missing in Most IEPs is Access to Assistive Technology


As an advocate, most of the time, when I review an IEP for a student who is struggling or not making progress – they are not receiving the support assistive technology (AT) offers.


This is a big problem. And I want to help you solve it.


This course walks you step-by-step through everything you need to know about the history of Special Ed, understanding the legal rights your child has through the IDEA Law, and optimizing AT – including AAC – in your child’s IEP.

What Qualifies as Assistive Technology?


There are a wide variety of tools and resources that fall under the category of AT. You may be surprised to learn that your child can benefit from Assistive Technology or just how many things qualify. 


Most schools aren’t providing these supports to kids. But under IDEA law, your school is required to consider AT for every child on an IEP.

  •  Slant board
  • Computer device
  • Manual wheelchair
  • Timers
  • Spell checker  
  • Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC)
  • Raised line paper
  • Tape recorder

There are 13 ways to qualify for an IEP.

Assistive Technology can benefit ALL children, no matter their disability 


Here’s what I need you to know: Effective use of Assistive technology will significantly improve your child’s means of accessing their education, increase  communication, and increase their independence  

You don’t have to do it all alone. So let me help speed you through years of experience and knowledge in one compact, self-guided course!

Self-Guided Education Modules

Learn the history of Special Ed, differences in 504 vs. IEP, how to make sure your team is trained to work with your child’s AAC device (not just on it), and more.

Consideration vs Evalution 

Your child’s team checking a “Considered AT” box on their IEP is not the same as assessing their needs for AT. I’ll help you understand how to ask for an assessment and overcome potential challenges.

Writing Goals for 

AT Users

Now that you’ve added Assistive Technology to your child’s accommodations, what should IEP goals look like? I share a framework for creating effective goals.

Templates & Downloads

Everything you need:

how to set SMART goals, AT goal development, a variety of implementation checklists, key sections of the IEP, goal progress tracking, and all the tools you need.

Parent-Friendly Language

Between the acronyms and the legal language, it’s hard to even know what your child is entitled to or if they’re getting it. I break it all down in parent-friendly language and keep things simple!

Ongoing Support

From the time you purchase the course, you have 30 days of one-on-one access to me so you can ask me questions and get personalized feedback on applying what you’ve learned.

Hi, I’m Courtney!

Hi, I’m Courtney! An advocate licensed SLPA and mom of a child with disabilities. I know that you want the best for your child – and in my experience 
working with hundreds of families, I know that adding assistive technology to your child’s IEP is the best way to:

  • Increase independence
  • Increase self-esteem
  • Improve communication
  • Create a more inclusive environment

Your child has an incredible opportunity to expand their communication, understand how they learn best, and develop more independence when AT is used effectively and consistently. But it’s a lot to figure out.


I’ve done all the work for you. Over the past 10 years, we’ve learned how to use AT – in the form of an AAC device, an FM system, a slanted board, and a high-contrast board – with our daughter. We know how to make them fun and engaging, and we’ve learned – through trial and error – how to train her team to use them, too.


I created this course because it’s exactly what I wish every student I work with had access to. And I’m excited for you to learn and be empowered to get the most out of your child’s IEP! It’s not just about a single school year or specific class – AT is about equipping your child with the technology and support they need to succeed in life, maintain employment, and thrive.



This Doesn’t Have to be Overwhelming 


If you have 10 minutes a day to listen in, you can put the power of AT & The IEP to work in your child’s life. 


You can tune in directly on your phone from the carpool line, grocery checkout, or on a walk – and each lesson is designed to be simple and effective. 


This isn’t just another to-do item to add to your never-ending list. Including AT on your child’s IEP doesn’t have to be another fight! I make it easy to have a productive, positive conversation based on established protections under federal law. So let’s make this as easy as possible! 


Adding AT to your child’s IEP is one of the most powerful actions you can take


Assistive Technology will improve your child’s experience at school, build their confidence, and increase their independence.
