Rehabilitation and the Computer: How To Find What You Need.
Backer, Thomas
The paper is intended to help rehabilitation professionals use computer hardware and software in serving their clients and improving their professional associations and practices. Four types of computer applications are addressed (examples in parentheses): (1) assistive devices (environmental control systems, writing devices); (2) software to help in the rehabilitation process (computer-assisted learning systems); (3) client assessment software (computer-assisted psychological/vocational testing); and (4) software to enhance the management of rehabilitation organizations (word processing and report writing systems). In each of these areas, five processes necessary for successful use of computer technology are considered: goal definition, search, strategic planning, implementation, and maintenance. (CL)
