Assistive Technology Services (ATS)
Assistive Technology Services (ATS) uses technology, such as communication devices, apps, extensions, hardware, software, mobility devices, etc. to maximize the potential of FCPS students with disabilities.
The Virginia Department of Education’s Assistive Technology Tools and Strategies (VDOE VATTS) provides guidance for the consideration and/or assessment of assistive technology (AT), including planning and implementing AT services for students with disabilities.
ATS staff members work in collaboration with school teams to ensure that all students who require assistive technology have the technology tools and training necessary in order to access the curriculum, narrow the achievement gap, gain essential life skills, and reach their full potential.
Assistive Technology Services utilizes a UDL framework for the successful implementation of technology tools. It is the collective responsibility of a school team to successfully integrate AT tools into the curriculum.
