St. Mary Parish has instituted assistive technology services, which provide resources for students with special communication and daily living needs.
Through this resource, students found to be in need are provided with new and innovative technological aids that will assist them in developing functional and independent communication and daily living skills. These services assist teachers and families to maximize the potential of their students and children that are in need of unique training and technological aids.
Assistive technology is provided in a team approach. The team may include regular and special education teachers, nurses, educational diagnosticians, speech-language pathologists, physical therapists, and occupational therapists.
