Assessing Students’ Needs for Assistive Technology (ASNAT): A Resource Manual for School District Teams

Assessing Students’ Needs for Assistive Technology cover image

This fifth edition of the ASNAT manual continues to follow essentially the same format created by Dr. Penny Reed and the original team of WATI consultants 16 years ago. Many of the supports we created or adapted for AT assessment of students with disabilities can be used effectively when looking at the technology needs of other unidentified students who struggle with school demands.
