Participants will learn about the benefits and challenges of a wide range of assistive technologies for cognition that are used in vocational rehabilitation settings to reduce need for and dependency upon human job coaching supports. A list of assistive technology devices will be provided using input from researchers, clinical practitioners, vocational rehabilitation counselors and AT service providers and vendors (job coaches, employment specialists, compensatory skills trainers, etc.). Facilitators will discuss challenges and strategies related to screening, assess and matching individuals for devices.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Attendees will identify a range of assistive technologies for cognition that are actively used in the workplace to address hard and soft skill “deal breaker” issues on the job, as they relate to working and prospective memory, organization, executive function, task sequencing, multi-tasking, distractions, routines, following instructions, remembering supervisor feedback, managing troubling feelings and behaviors, managing time and communication. 
  2. Attendees will identify factors related to screening, assessment and matching individuals with appropriate technology. 
  3. Attendees will recognize follow-up evaluation challenges and instruments.
