Electronic Aids to Daily Living provide alternative control of devices within the environment. Basic EADLs can be used in the home or classroom to develop cognitive skills, provide independent play, socialization and participation, provide object manipulation, meet therapy goals and prepare clients for future, more sophisticated assistive technology use. As Tablets are becoming such a key tool in the classroom and therapy, is there still a role for this technology? This course will present product options, modes of control and application ideas of both Basic EADLs and Tablets to meet these goals.
