5 Things to Love About the SETT Framework
A- A+

The SETT Framework by Dr. Joy Zabala (Director of Technical Assistance at CAST) is a widely used approach for collaborative decision-making in AT. It’s a tool we love, teach about, and use, but many SLPs aren’t that familiar with it. Here are some of the reasons we think it deserves your consideration.

1. It gives everyone a common focus. We all look at the student from our own perspective and sometimes fail to think about how our priorities intersect with those of other team members. The SETT Framework helps us to all look at the same thing at the same time.

2. Defensive, who me? When you focus on a framework or process, people are less likely to become defensive when we’re trying to make things better for the student.

3. It becomes a way of thinking. Teams that are in the habit of using the SETT Framework are generally in problem-solving mode all the time. The sooner we recognize problems, the better off our students will be.

4. It really DOES help level the playing field.

5. It is a tried-and-true approach with established resources.
