AT & Aging and AT & Dementia Decision Tools Workshop
Tools for Life | Georgia Tech, in partnership with the Georgia Department of Aging Services (DAS), is developing 2 comprehensive AT Decision Tools (Algorithms). One of these tools is focused on AT and Aging and the other one is focused on Dementia and builds upon the AT and Aging Tool.
The Goal of this Workshop is to smart-source our community of professionals to develop Decision Trees/Algorithms to expand knowledge of AT, AT strategies, resources and to identify "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 living with dementia.
We are hosting a 1.5 day Workshop at 2017 ATIA Orlando. Lunch will be included.
January 17th from 11:00AM to 4:30 PM
January 18th from 9:30AM to 4:00 PM
Royal Caribe Hotel & Conference in Orlando, Florida http://www.cariberoyale.com/
You, other AT Professionals, and subject matter experts (SMEs) from across the country in a variety of fields to help develop the AT & Aging Decision Tool (Algorithms) and AT & Dementia Decision Tool (Algorithms).
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. We will be adding these to our reference guide of all these resources and will make those available prior to the meeting for participants to review.
