The DHS Olmstead Plan outlines several key goals that must be accomplished to ensure people with disabilities are living, learning, working, and enjoying life in the most integrated setting possible. One strategy outlined within the plan to achieve person-centered planning goals is to incorporate assistive technology assessments into person-centered planning processes. Learn more about the Olmstead Plan

With new assistive technology devices becoming available all the time, and as needs of individuals change, staff should assess assistive technology needs annually to ensure individuals are given the opportunity to perform as independently as possible.

To help us facilitate this objective, we created the following flow chart and assessment form to guide staff through the assessment process, and to determine the best course of action moving forward.
