Assistive Technologies and Cognitive Testing
University of Michigan researchers are developing adapted versions of standardized tests to provide children with physical and speech impairments with more accessible testing. Our clinicians are leading the development of alternative testing methods that use Assistive Technology (AT) and adapted versions of many cognitive tests focusing on literacy, processing speed and attention impairment among others.
