A wide variety of assistive technology devices can be interfaced to power wheelchairs with complex rehab electronics. Interfacing streamlines access methods, so that one access method can control more than one device, including speech generating devices, computers and electronic aids to daily living. For persons with limited access, interfacing can greatly increase independent control. This course will systematically explore how and when to interface assistive technology, specifically speech generating devices. This course is open captioned.
