Innovations in Technology for Individuals With Severe Disabilities
This program includes two recordings that highlight technological innovations that allow people with severe disabilities to communicate and experience the greatest and most socially valid therapeutic gains. Case studies, videos, and team-based strategies provide insight into how individuals with complex needs are using new technologies, such as switches and eye tracking technology, for communicating. Learn how innovations that are now a familiar part of our clinical landscape arose from creative and constructive interprofessional partnerships—and how to turn your own ideas into the next great innovation to benefit this client base. These recordings originally appeared in the June 2014 online conference "Improving Communication of People With Severe Disabilities: Interprofessional Strategies."
You will be able to:
- identify some of the latest technology innovations that can be explored to support ease of access to communication

- identify existing products, policies, and practices that resulted from creative interprofessional collaborations
