Every Move Counts is an evidence-based approach that represents a synthesis in the research from the areas of educational theory, sensory motor development, communication, and vision. EMC3 is a sensory based approach to communication and assistive technology. It includes assessment, implementation, and evaluation of effective strategies for the identification of interests and abilities on which a functional communication system and appropriate assistive technology applications can be built. Information is relevant to the needs of those individuals who are currently unable to communicate their wants and needs spontaneously in their environment regardless of age or severity of physical and/or communicative differences. This content supports the development of communication who have severe multiple differences, developmental differences and/or autism.

Successful assistive technology programs begin with a vision of what quality services should look like and a course of action that helps the agency move toward that vision. This series is intended to support educational leaders in developing and/or improving assistive technology services by offering a practical roadmap to effective assistive technology services. Throughout the series, participants will investigate barriers many districts face in the provision of assistive technology and focus on specific leadership actions that can move districts toward high-quality, and cost-efficient AT services.
