National AT Aging & Dementia Decision Tree Workshop -- ATIA 2018
Thank you for agreeing to participate in the National AT Aging & Dementia Decision Tree Workshop, hosted by Tools for Life | Georgia Tech. We are looking forward to working with you!
The goal of this workshop is to smart-source our community of AT professionals to develop Decision Trees/Algorithms to expand knowledge of AT, AT strategies, resources and to identify obstacles and "red flags" to ensure appropriate referrals. Ultimately, we want to assist everyone in finding appropriate Assistive Technology strategies and solutions for individuals who are aging and individuals with dementia. We need Your Help!
We have researched several existing assessment tools and checklists that are currently available. If you have access to any additional assessments, checklists, flowcharts and/or decision-making tools that would be helpful for us to review, please share if you can. You can send your resources directly to Liz Persaud at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited about this opportunity to create innovative solutions with you that help so many individuals we serve and have far reaching positive outcomes!
