Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joy Hammel, PhD, OTR, FAOTA (Univ of Illinois at Chicago Coll of Associated Health Professions)
Description: This book provides a framework for evaluating and implementing specialized adapted computer access solutions.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a structure for considering current and future adapted computer access solutions and a taxonomy to guide the selection and implementation process. A specific text on adapted computer access is a valuable resource for assistive technology (AT) service providers and educators.
Audience: The audience includes students, consumers, and AT service deliverers who are seeking strategies for organizing and prioritizing computer access information and solutions. Because the book emphasizes specialized computer access specifically, it is recommended that readers have a prerequisite working knowledge of and experience with clinical, functional, and disability-related needs assessment, evaluation, and intervention planning to appreciate and complement the specialized knowledge contained in this book.
Features: A detailed decision tree summarizes the computer access selection process and links to more detailed information on specific solution options. Tables that summarize current access solutions across commonly used computer systems serve as quick reference resources and are linked to vendor contact information. Readers could prepare their own tables to add new products to these resources lists as they become available. Tables are followed by a brief introductory case study and easy-to-follow descriptions of specific access features and key issues and questions related to choosing the best combination of features to best match the individual user's needs.
Assessment: This is a useful resource for students, AT service providers, consumers, and educators who wish to learn more about computer access through the use of a problem-solving decision tree with accompanying product summaries and feature analyses.
