Assistive Technology Training and various environments that device may be utilized
The IEP team have gathered after meeting with the TJ's Parents.
Teacher: The SALTILLO device is portable lightweight, the camera is front and rear facing, Bluetooth, and interchangeable shells. The device should be charged each night. It is an Android operating system.
Aid:I hope the assistive technology SALTILLO that we agreed upon will decrease TJ's aggression.
Has anyone ever used an assistive device before?
Yes, once it can be challenging but worth the knowledge and experience.
Until TJ has mastered training with the device, he should be monitored closely.
The training to utilize the SALTILLO device wasn't as bad as I thought. Yes, I think with patience we can get TJ on track and alleviate his frustration. I think that's where his aggression comes from his lack of being able to communicate effectively.
TJ was hesitant at the start of training. But later became engaged and responsive, there was minimal aggression.
Teacher: I want you all to keep this in mind that TJ may need to have his assistive technology adjusted, which means additional training on its usage.
Ah, I am understanding SETT. We are ensuring that TJ utilizes the best tool/technology for his needs.
