ADAPT Community Network - What You Need to Know About Assistive Technology in the IEP
7/11/2024, 10:00 AM 11:30 AM

This training will teach parents, grandparents, guardians about appropriate Assistive Technology (AT) devices and services how they allow students with disabilities to participate in and benefit from the general education curriculum and to meet Individualized Education Program (IEP) goals. For every student with an IEP, federal and state regulations require that the team consider the student’s need for assistive technology devices and services. The IEP must include a description of AT devices or services, or both, to be provided, if such devices and/or services are required as part of the special education program.

Tina Beauparlant has 34 years of experience working with families of children with special needs and the professionals who serve them. She is a parent of a 37-year-old son, who has a diagnosis of Down Syndrome. She realizes upon her personal experiences and the knowledge she has gained over the years while navigating the special education system in NYS and the OPWDD adult systems to connect with and provide assistance to parents and professionals. Tina began her vocation in the field of Educational Advocacy after her son, David, was born with Down Syndrome. When her son started in school there were few agencies to help her. She felt the world had moved her family aside and that they were all alone. She was told by a friend to call Parent to Parent of NYS. When she called, she found a kind voice on the other end of the phone that said YOU ARE NOT ALONE. WE ARE HERE TO HELP! Tina has a true passion for what she does and is committed to educating parents and professionals to ensure that ALL children with special needs receive “A Free and Appropriate Public Education.” Tina lives in Schenectady County with her husband Ronald and their two children David and Ronald II.
