About the AT Wheel

For years, tens of thousands of educators, parents, and school leaders used the original Assistive Technology Wheel developed by the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) to select appropriate resources for Individualized Education Plans.

CAST is pleased to provide an all-new AT Wheel with updated content and resources. Created by CEC’s Innovations in Special Education Technology (CEC-ISET) membership group, the AT Wheel is a handy, compact tool that maps student needs in a variety of areas to dozens of potential assistive technology solutions.

The two-sided wheel covers a variety of topics—

Side 1

  • Hearing
  • Vision
  • Mobility
  • Recreation
  • Activities of Daily Living
  • Interaction with the Environment
  • Support, Positioning, and Seating

Side 2

  • Communication
  • Reading Written Composition
  • Organization/Study
  • Math
  • Motor Aspects of Writing
  • Computer/Tablet Access

For each section, authors identify corresponding digital and analog tools that address the particular needs. The Wheel also has a list of useful AT web resources and an at-a-glance guide to AT considerations in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

The Assistive Technology Wheel is available now for $12.00 and includes an access code for the free EPUB edition printed on each wheel.
