Assistive Technology Evaluations
Easter Seals Greater Houston's Children's Therapy and BridgingApps programs are now offering comprehensive Assistive Technology Evaluations. Assistive Technology is an item, piece of equipment, software or product system that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities. Assisitive Technology can be anything from low tech communication boards, to high tech communication devices iPads, or switches.
Elizabeth Mann, a speech pat hologist with years of experience in assessing clients to determine their Assistive Technology needs, as well as working with clients and their assistive technology devices, will be providing these services. Elizabeth received her Bacherlor's degree in Communication Disorders from the University of Texas at Austin and her Master's degree in Communication Disorders from The George Washington University. Elizabeth has worked with and is familiar with low tech communication boards, PECS, Prentke Romich devices, Dynavox devices, Tobii devices, and a variety of switches just to name a few.
The lab includes a variety of touch-based mobile devices and works in conjunction with Easter Seals' existing assistive technology lab (a project of the Texas Project Access) and Easter Seals BridgingApps Project, which provides a bridge between technology and its users with a focus on disabilities.
You may also join us at 6:30 p.m. the second Thursday of each even month for a DynaVox Clinic and is intended for people already using AAC. To attend the workship, please RSVP in advance at www.DynaVoxTech.com.
