Comprehensive Data Sets for Assistive Technology Goals
January 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Session Description: Assistive technology interventions are only as good as the supports provided for successful implementation. This session will give insight on how to write comprehensive and achievable supports to ensure the person is successful with their devices. We will look at creative data sets to monitor progress and improve AT supports, that can be generalized to all person-centered goals. We’ll also showcase some innovative technologies that have helped people increase their independence.
