Leading the Way to Excellence in AT Services: A Guide for School Administrators is a “how-to” guide for educators who want to develop or improve assistive technology (AT) services for their schools, districts, programs, or agencies. It includes several self-assessment tools that can help leaders focus efforts on actions that have been proven successful and that fit into the routine tasks that administrators and AT leaders commonly do.  This book is intended for two audiences: educational administrators and AT providers. Educational administrators include principals, assistant principals, special education directors, special education supervisors, and anyone else filling a position of leadership in the schools. AT providers include individuals with assistive technology in their job title or job description as well as those who love technology and find themselves helping others figure out how to use it. These two audiences work together in order to develop truly effective and efficient AT services for students with disabilities.
