QIAT – Quality Indicators for Assistive Technology

If you want to get in on the best brainstorming sessions in assistive technology, join the QIAT listserv.  QIAT also features the Quality Indicators themselves.  In their own words:

The QIAT Consortium is a nationwide grassroots group that includes hundreds of individuals who provide input into the ongoing process of identifying, disseminating, and implementing a set of widely-applicable Quality Indicators for Assistive Technology Services in School Settings that can be used as a tool to support:

  • school districts as they strive to develop and provide quality assistive technology services aligned to federal, state and local mandates
  • assistive technology service providers as they evaluate and constantly improve their services
  • consumers of assistive technology services as they seek adequate assistive technology services which meet their needs
  • universities and professional developers as they conduct research and deliver programs that promote the development of the competencies needed to provide quality assistive technology services
  • policy makers as they attempt to develop judicious and equitable policies related to assistive technology services.
