Introducing the Center for Inclusive Design and Engineering (CIDE)
CIDE's research infrastructure supports innovations in healthy living through technology, inclusive environments, independence, empowerment and community participation.
CIDE's Assistive Technology track within the Department of Bioengineering provides students first hand opportunities to learn, research, and develop state-of-the-art technologies to improve human function.
Presenter: Teri Engler Esq.
This presentation is designed to provide educators with an in-depth review of current legal requirements under the IDEA, Section 504 and the ADA, and the uniquely challenging legal issues relative to the use of assistive technology by children with disabilities. The statutory and regulatory framework for AT consideration, evaluation, and service delivery, as well as relevant administrative and judicial rulings on AT devices and services for IDEA- and Section 504-eligible students, will be highlighted. Practical suggestions for addressing a wide range of AT-related issues and improving procedures in schools will be provided.
