Awareness & Assessment Protocol (AAP)
A tool for clinicians working with people with physical or cognitive disabilities
Provides quantitative information about a clients abilities and likely difficulties in using the Web. The AAP has been designed for clinicians by a Speech Pathologist and an Occupational Therapist. Its purpose is to assess the ability of the client to use the equipment and to comprehend what is required to use the Internet.
Comprehensive tests cover touch accuracy, visual discrimination and memory, and reading skills. Each test is scored on a provided score sheet and the client's results can be related to a researched normal range. The results enable the clinician to detect any abnormality in the client's view and comprehension of the computer screen.
At the end of the assessment the clinician is able to recommend modifications to support a clients introduction to the Internet.
