Mobile Technologies for Everyday Cognitive Support

Free Webinar from AbleNet University

Mobile phones and tablets are rapidly evolving consumer technologies that offer rich opportunities for supporting everyday tasks and vocations.  Drawing on a decade of research into the use of these tools as assistive technology for cognition, this presentation will include discussion of:  (1) the strengths and weaknesses of consumer handhelds as cognitive-behavioral aids, (2) onboard apps for task support, (3) add-on apps for task management, behavioral support, way-finding, and healthy living, and (4) strategies for leveraging these tools for people with cognitive-behavioral challenges to support functional independence in everyday life.
