ATC—What is it? Assistive technology for cognition (ATC) refers to the use of technology to compensate for cognitive challenges. ATC includes low-tech aids such as notepads, calendars, and clocks. It also includes more complex electronic aids including tablets, simple cell phones, and smart phones. With technology always changing, why use this Toolkit? Although changes in technology are occurring at a rapid pace, the need for systematic assessment and training of ATC following brain injury remains constant. The goal of this manual is to address these constants. This Toolkit is for trainers. Trainers (instructors, coaches) include caregivers, family members, job coaches, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, and volunteers—anyone in a position to help someone with a brain injury learn to use ATC. This Toolkit was informed by the latest research on how to assess, select, and train ATC for individuals with cognitive impairments due to acquired brain injury. - See more at: http://cbirt.org/products/training-assistive-technology-environment-tate/#sthash.oAj67Ult.dpuf
