Quality Indicators for Assistive Technology The QIAT Community is a nationwide grassroots group that includes hundreds of individuals who provide input into the ongoing process of identifying, disseminating, and implementing a set of widely-applicable Quality Indicators for Assistive Technology Services in school settings that can be used as a tool to support:

school districts as they strive to develop and provide quality assistive technology services aligned to federal, state and local mandates

assistive technology service providers as they evaluate and constantly improve their services

consumers of assistive technology services as they seek adequate assistive technology services which meet their needs

universities and professional developers as they conduct research and deliver programs that promote the development of the competencies needed to provide quality assistive technology services

policy makers as they attempt to develop judicious and equitable policies related to assistive technology services.
SETT Framework SETT is an acronym for Student, Environments, Tasks, and Tools. Although the letters form a memorable word, they are not intended to imply an order, other than that the student, environments, and tasks should be fully explored before tools are considered or selected.
