What is the SETT Framework?

The SETT Framework is a guideline for gathering data in order to make effective assistive technology decisions. The SETT Framework considers first, the STUDENT, the ENVIRONMENT(S) and the TASKS required for active participation in the activities of the environment, and finally, the system of TOOLS needed for the student to address the tasks.
