Disability Awareness & Cognitive Supportive Technology (CST)
Karen Jacobs; SAR
Assistive Technology (AT) is generally defined as: Any item, piece of equipment or product systems, whether acquired commercially, off the shelf, modified or customized, that is used to increase, maintain or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities. Cognitive Support Technologies (CST) is a class of AT designed to help with memory, attention, concentration, time management and organization among other skills. iPads are one example of a CST device. This hands-on session will provide the opportunity to use iPad Apps such as Notability and 30/30. In addition, through the use of guided disability-related simulations created by occupational therapy graduate students, attendees will experience the relationships between the environment and individuals with a variety of characteristics, and will learn how appropriate accommodations can enable and empower people with disabilities to live life to its fullest.
