Abstract:
Survey examined clinicians' experiences and expectations regarding the use of portable electronic devices in traumatic brain injury rehabilitation. Most participants believed that learning/memory and planning/organization were areas of impairment that could be remediated using portable electronic devices. However, many respondents also identified learning and memory abilities as essential client characteristics for successful use of portable electronic devices. Respondents expressed low confidence overall in their ability to guide client in the use of devices. Those who reported personal use were significantly more confident than those who did not.
