Evaluations: Professional assistive technology evaluations for school age children and adults performed by our highly qualified staff. NEAT Evaluation Services include assistive technology evaluations to determine the assistive technology needs of the individual with disabilities. An evaluation will provide the PPT or service team with a written report and recommendations regarding the assistive technology that will meet the needs of the person. Evaluations are based on a review of records, intake form, conversations with educators, support staff, clinicians, family and the individual, observations, trial with the device and/or programs, and follow-up conversations.
Consultations: Let the AT specialists at NEAT assist you in addressing the AT needs of the individual with disabilities. Our consultation services: help your teams to develop a framework for considering AT; conduct assistive technology trials; examine outcomes of trials and incorporate AT into the IEP or support plan; equip educators and/or teams with the knowledge and skills to address the AT needs of the individual. Consultations typically last 1-2 hours and do not yield written reports or written recommendations for use at a PPT or support team. In the case that you have needs beyond a two-hour meeting, require a formal written report, or need written reports/recommendations, we will only be able to address these with a full evaluation.
