Statement of context: The ubiquitous nature of tablet devices and their related applications known as apps has led to their use as assistive technologies in a range of settings, including intellectual disability. Using tablet technology for this purpose requires collaboration to foster informed choices for users. Critical reflection on practice: Two initiatives are described, aimed at building knowledge and confidence of practitioners to enable informed conversations with people who plan to use tablet devices. Outcomes of these training workshops and a fact sheet are presented. Implications for practice: Findings from 99 attendees indicated that training and resources were beneficial to practitioners to increase knowledge and confidence. However, ongoing support is required to ensure confidence and collaboration.
