My son has autism and needs assistive technology tools. The school does not have anyone on staff that can help with AT decision-making or training and instead has students help each other. Is this acceptable? How can I talk to my son's school about getting more support for assistive technology?

I have recently heard about a program for students with ADHD/ADD that allows them to wear headphones while the teacher speaks into a microphone. This allows the student to be actively engaged in the instruction part of a lesson. Can you tell me what it is called and/or where I can obtain it?
