Windows OS Modification for Users with Traumatic Brain Injury

Date & Time
Wednesday, March 20, 2024 - 10:20 AM PDT  
Platinum 8  

This session covers a unique case study of a university professor with traumatic brain injury (TBI) who required user interface (UI) modification to the Windows operating system. This case was facilitated by a collaboration of the professor, an Occupational Therapist specializing in assistive technology, and a departmental information technology professional. This led to successfully modifying Windows 10, her ability to access her computer for her job tasks, and ultimately maintaining her employment as a professor. Attendees will be exposed to a case where collaboration was integral to a successful outcome and to considering highly individualized TBI symptoms and subsequent UI needs. Considering the specific needs of users with TBI is integral to their computer access, with implications for employment, education, and generally, their independence.
