The complexity of identifying quality indicators that could be useful across a wide variety of educational environments and service provision options is evident. The issues relating to implementation of quality services in a way that supports positive student results are even more complex. There is clearly a need for the participation of people with a wide variety of perspectives and experiences as providers and consumers of assistive technology services in defining and implementing this work.
Please join in the continuing effort to develop Quality Indicators for Assistive Technology Services in school settings by subscribing to the QIAT List and participating in collegial discussions.

- How can I reduce the number of messages I get each day on the QIAT List?
To change the settings on your QIAT subscription to a digest version, go to http://lsv.uky.edu/scripts/wa.exe?SUBED1=qiat&A=1. Digests combine several messages before sending so that you receive only one or two messages a day. Most people have found the HTML digest to be the most user-friendly.
