Assessments and Referrals
ATI provides informal assessments for faculty, staff and students who may need the use of assistive technology.
An assessment includes:
- A brief overview of the individual’s needs and the type of technology they are comfortable using.
- An introduction to the technology available and a demo of the technology that could work for them.
- Typically scheduled at our office on the Fairfax campus and last about 1 hour.
A referral from DS (Disability Services) for an assessment would be needed for any student requesting accommodations, such as assistive technology to use in the classroom. Faculty and Staff would need a referral from the ADA Coordinator in Compliance, Diversity and Ethics for workplace accommodations. However, a referral is not needed for anyone to visit our office and see what technology is available on campus and learn about our resources.
