Description
This course is focused on the components necessary for people with disabilities to access Assistive Technology and Assistive Technology Services. Students will be able to apply experience from previous coursework and experience with AT devices from a context of policy (legislative and non-legislative), funding, and organizational management that surrounds services. Content will focus on funding sources, legislative policy, clinical assessment, documentation procedures, use of evidence, and advocacy efforts. Examples of systems change activities and current topics will also be reviewed and discussed. Advocacy and procedures for due process and policy change will also be reviewed for situations when funding sources and policies are limited. The management portion will focus on the essential components of a service delivery program or business model that includes strategic planning, human resource/organizational behavior, policies and procedures, accreditation, budgets, quality improvement, business planning and resource management.
