Can my child use their assistive technology (AT) device at home?
“In many cases, yes,” says Undivided Education Advocate Lisa Carey. “Especially if the app is used to complete work that might be included in homework like a text-to-speech app or MathType.”
Under IDEA and 504, the use of AT isn’t limited to school use, so the device or technology can go back and forth. For example, Carey says that if an AT device is necessary to complete homework, such as reading, and the student uses a reading app on the device, then they should be able to take it home.
