Download file here: SETT Framework PackageFile description: This "package" contains training materials for the SETT Framework. It includes two short articles on the SETT Framework, the blank SETT form, Laura's initial SETT form, and Laura's revised SETT form. This package includes all material that you need to train and support your colleagues in understanding what the SETT Framework is all about. A great activity to do with these materials would be to complete the blank SETT form on a student they currently work with. And remember... the SETT Framework isn't just good for figuring out AT solutions, but it can also be helpful in figuring out non-AT solutions.

It includes a blank AT Consideration Form and a Sample (complete) AT Consideration Form. It also includes a step-by-step outline of the Assistive Technology Assessment process, so that folks can understand where in the process the AT Consideration fits in.
Download file here: AT Continuum PackageFile description: This "package" contains training materials for the AT Continuums. It contains a summary of the AT Continuums for you to use as you explain the continuums to your colleagues. It also contains one continuum (Spelling) and its corresponding datasheets. I feel that this is the most straightforward continuum, as you're simply measuring percentage of correctly spelled words, so its the easier continuum to use for training. This package also contains a "cheatsheet" which generally explains what tools teachers are responsible for implementing within their classrooms and what tools need an AT Assessment in order to be used.
