QIAT includes quality indicators, intent statements, and common errors for eight areas important to the development and delivery of assistive technology services. It is the intent of the QIAT Consortium that each area be fully explored because the areas are complementary in nature.
When reviewing or using the Quality Indicators for Assistive Technology, it is important to be aware of some basic assumptions that pertain to all areas of QIAT:
- It is essential that ALL AT services developed and delivered by states or districts are legally correct according to the mandates and expectations of federal and state laws and are aligned to district policies.
- AT efforts, at all stages, involves on-going collaborative work by teams which include families and caregivers, school personnel, and other needed individuals and service agencies.
- Team members involved in AT processes are responsible for following the code of ethics for their specific profession.
