This New, one-of-a-kind resource can serve as a textbook or a clinical tool for computer-based assistive technology. The book assumes that the reader is familiar with the process of physical and cognitive evaluation of the client with a disability. Little or no-prior knowledge of computers is required.-- A comprehensive flow chart helps the reader evaluate his or her client. It is followed by detailed explanations of client assessment questions.-- Following evaluation, 26 chapters provide specific information on modifications. Each chapter: -- begins with a table that lists products and manufacturers that provide the indicated adaptation-- has introductory case studies that illustrate how the adaptation can be used for a particular client-- describes the features of the standard computer that present difficulties for the client-- describes the type of adaptation to the computer: what it is and how it will influence the ability of the client to use the computer-- explains how this type of adaptation may change the way the computer is used by others-- Written simply, clearly and coherently -- the author uses many common analogies to illustrate concepts
