Assistive technology (AT) can be defined as any item, piece of
equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercially off the
shelf, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or
improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities.
(29 U.S.C. Sec 2202(2)). Region 7 supports local school districts by
providing consultation services and technical assistance on assistive
technology that help students access the general curriculum.
Request for Technical Assistance
Technical assistance can be provided through email, telephone
conversations, video conferencing, and/or onsite visits. Contact Jill
Beall, Special Education Specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call 903.988.6765.\\Requests for on-site consultation specific to a
student should be made through email to Jill Beall. Please secure
permission from the special education director and campus principal
prior to on-site technical assistance.
Request for Professional Development and Training
Requests for training in all areas of assistive technology should be
directed to Jill Beall. Requests should be made through the special
education director, district AT manager, and/or campus administrator.
Training of assistive technology issues may include legal requirements,
evaluation, the consideration process, supports for reading and writing,
augmentative communication, device selection, and implementation of AT
devices within the school setting.
Request for AT Item Checkout
Region 7 has a limited inventory of assistive technology items available
for checkout to districts within our region. Loaning AT items allows
school personnel an opportunity to try various devices with students to
ensure the suitability of a particular device to the individual needs of
a student before purchasing. Call or email Jill Beall for information
to the availability of AT items.
We ask that you do not bring children under the age of 18 with you when you attend training presented by Region 7 ESC. Thank you for your cooperation.
