SIG 2 Perspectives Vol. 23, No. 2, July 2013
This issue of Perspectives introduces current practices of assessment and instruction in the application of assistive technology for cognition (ATC) in people with acquired brain injury (ABI). Professionals reportedly find it difficult to incorporate ATC into their practice because of a lack of proficiency with devices and applications and instructional methods to ensure carryover of ATC. In this series of articles, we will provide several different perspectives on the use of ATC, information on instruction of use and carryover of ATC for people with ABI, and reimbursement issues related to ATC.
You will be able to:
- describe basics of systematic assessment and instruction principles and techniques applied to assistive technology for cognition following brain injury
- identify current mainstream ATC devices
- list types of native and non-native apps used by individuals with ABI
- describe different documentation needs of medical necessity to acquire ATC for patients with brain injury and limitations of coverage
