Decision Making

During the decision making phase the assessment team uses the information gathered to discuss strategies, tools, devices or services that are needed to help the student succeed. This decision making process typically follows the SETT Framework (Student, Environment, Task and Tools) which guides the team to generate possible AT solutions (Tools).
The following guide can be used during the decision making phase but it is important that this information be collected in a format where all participants can see and contribute to one list, either on a flip chart or overhead, and then transferred to paper for distribution, file and future reference.
