How is timely manner defined in regards to obtaining an assistive technology device?

Answer: 

Once an assistive technology device is determined necessary for the student, the district must implement procedures necessary for obtaining the device without unnecessary delay. When a delay is anticipated (e.g., equipment is on backorder from the company) the school should inform the parent and implement procedures to ensure that the student has access to the instructional program. It may be possible for the district to rent, borrow, or lease an appropriate device in the interim.
