IC79: Assistive Technology Collaboration Between Occupational Therapists and Speech Language Pathologists in Adult Rehab Setting

The content of this presentation will address Assistive Technology approaches for collaboration of OT and SLP in the evaluation, selection, and delivery of AAC and custom wheelchair seating equipment. An overview will include common evaluation methods for OT, SLP, AT models and service delivery, feature matching of AAC, custom wheelchair seating equipment and access methods for switch use as applicable to the outpatient adult rehab setting. Case studies will be provided to enhance learning and clinical application for AT services, and to provide examples of OT, SLP collaboration for neurologic populations.
