I-Team Fee for Service Options for 2015-2016

Technical Assistance Fee

A $895 annual fee will be charged for technical assistance per student:

This yearly fee includes onsite and distance based technical assistance from I-Team Consultants up to 25 hours. The level of technical assistance is dependent on the needs of the student, the family, and the student’s educational team. Once the needs are collaboratively identified, I-Team Consultants provide technical assistance which is monitored through a student action plan. Each region within Vermont has an Education Consultant and a Family Resource Consultant. Related Service Consultants (Communication, Assistive Technology, Occupational and Physical Therapy, Deaf-blindness, & Cortical Visual Impairments) provide technical assistance throughout the state.

Fees for Professional Development

Webinars: The I-Team collaborates with the AT Tryout Center to offer webinars in the area of reading, writing, and assistive technology. In addition, we are collaborating with Vermont Sensory Access Project to offer webinars on Cortical Visual Impairment.
