Volume 17 Theme: Best Practices for the Design and Development of AT Products
This volume of ATOB invites authors representing Voices from Academia, Voices from Industry, and Voices from the Field to submit manuscripts pertaining to the design and development of hardware, software, or hybrid products benefiting individuals with disability. Research articles from academia, case studies from the industry, as well as experiences from AT Makers are all welcome to contribute to Volume 17.
CURRENT VOLUME NOW AVAILABLE: Volume 16 Issue 1: Assistive Technology Services During and After the COVID-19 Pandemic
Volume 16 Issue 1 aims to explore assistive technology services during and after the COVID-19 pandemic along with an analysis of lessons learned. Articles cover services across a range of age groups (e.g., school-aged children, post-secondary education, adults in the workforce) and across different forms of assistive technology. Articles include studies on organizational efforts (e.g., states, school districts, non-profit organizations, vendors) to pivot traditional service delivery models as well as new service delivery models (e.g., remote instruction, tele-practice, web-based). Articles may describe any “lessons learned,” and, if available, evidence of the effectiveness of the new service delivery models and how such models may be continued or extended in a post-pandemic world.
This issue also includes articles from the broad scope of assistive technology research as part of ATOB’s mission to bring together the latest research in assistive technology in its annual issue.
