• Assistive Technology (AT) is any tool or device that can improve the independence of a student with a disability. AT allows our students to perform tasks that they could otherwise not do. The WWS AT team consists of professionals with a range of AT expertise. AT also supports Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in the classroom throughout the district. Please see the attached brochure for more details.
