What is the role of the Area Education Agency (AEA) in implementing assistive technology Law and Regulations?

Answer: 

AEAs are to provide information to their personnel as well as to local district personnel in order to maintain and expand the expertise of staff members about assistive technology devices and services. AEAs also provide technical assistance and professional development to local district personnel. AEA personnel assist local districts in finding appropriate assistive technology devices and services as well as purchasing assistive technology devices where appropriate.
