    SETT Framework

    When choosing Assistive Technology (AT) tools for students, the LWSD AT team uses the SETT (Student, Environment, Tasks, Tools) Framework created by Joy Zabala. In the SETT framework:

    Student

    The Student component looks at the student's strengths, weaknesses, preferences and interests.

    Environment

    The Environment portion looks at the supports that already exist in the student's normal day.

    Tasks

    The Tasks component takes a look at what the student needs to complete or do.

    The Student, Environment and Tasks components are considered first. After considering these factors, the AT team looks at the Tools the student has previously used.

    After considering all items in the SETT Framework, Assistive Technology tools can be selected to meet the student's need to perform a specific task.
