Education professionals are optimistic about additional financial resources that are available under IDEA Part B of the American Recovery Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Investments in “state-of-the art assistive technology and training” are among one recommendation released by the Office of Special Education Programs. There is no single common understanding of “state-of-the-art assistive technology and training” that education professionals turn to in order to define this concept. In order to gain insight within the field, the National Center for Technology Innovation (NCTI) and the Center for Implementing Technology in Education (CITEd) surveyed researchers, developers, implementation specialists, and policy makers to better identify how they conceptualized “state-of-the-art assistive technology and training.” Over 65 key thought leaders responded to this query, providing valuable insight on key elements of innovative assistive technology and training. This session presents these findings so that participants can be well informed when making decisions about assistive technology and training for their students with special needs.
