Assistive Technology Credentials
The MISD Assistive Technology (AT) Leader credential program is designed to ensure the effective use of the MISD AT decision-making and implementation process so that students with special needs receive the AT services they need to be fully engaged and successful in the general curriculum. The MISD Assistive Technology (AT) Team works collaboratively with local district leaders to ensure that every IEP team has access to a knowledgeable individual to support the consideration and implementation of assistive technology services. In Macomb County, these individuals are known as AT Leaders. AT Leaders coordinate assistive technology efforts in their own district, act as an AT resource to colleagues, lead IEP teams through the assistive technology evaluation process, support teachers and teams as AT is implemented throughout the curriculum and help IEP teams evaluate the effectiveness of AT implementation.
