The consortium promotes and facilities the capacity to deliver quality AT services through regional and inter-regional collaboration and training by:
- Communicating with both state and national agencies that serve Region IV students in order to exchange ideas, information, and resources.
- Reviewing software and technologies appropriate for students with disabilities and facilitating group purchases to reduce costs.
- Provide professional development opportunities to staff and parents throughout the region.
- Region IV Conference
- Accessible Educational Materials (AEM)/Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
- Assistive Technology Forum Presenters
- iOS updates relating to accessibility
- Low Incidence/Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC)
- 21 Things 4 Teachers Website - Assistive Technology Supports
- Michigan Department of Education (MDE) Updates
Region IV Assistive Technology Guidelines
The Guidelines for the Provision of Quality Assistive Technology Services: A Plan for Region IV is based upon the Region IV Assistive Technology Plan created by the 1994 Academy on Assistive Technology (see appendix for list of participants). As a result of the 1994 Plan, the Michigan Region IV Assistive Technology Consortium was formed. The Michigan Region IV Assistive Technology Consortium is dedicated to building the capacity of its members to deliver quality assistive technology services. The consortium includes representatives from Jackson, Lenawee, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair; Washtenaw, and Wayne counties and serves several purposes. This plan guides the work of the Region IV Assistive Technology Consortium. It also serves as a framework for districts, counties and schools to use as they develop and refine their Assistive Technology Services. The revised plan reflects a response to current legislation, including No Child Left Behind and IDEA 2004. In addition, it incorporates the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and integrates Quality Indicators for Assistive Technology (QIAT) into the Assistive Technology process.
