FEAT - Functional Evaluation for Assistive Technology, model 10909, is an assistive technology evaluation system designed for use with individuals with cognitive or learning disabilities or brain injury. This systematic, comprehensive, multidimensional, and ecologically-based assessment protocol can be used with people from elementary aged students through postsecondary adults. The scale can be used to determine the most appropriate and effective assistive technology devices to help individuals with learning disabilities compensate for difficulties and meet the demands of specific tasks and contexts. The assessment has five scales: the Contextual Matching Inventory (provides information about setting-specific demands), the Checklist of Strengths and Limitations (used to gather data regarding person-specific characteristics), the Checklist of Technology Experiences (offers information about the person's past/current use of technology), the Technology Characteristics Inventory (examines device-specific characteristics such as dependability, product support, etc.), and the Individual-Technology Evaluation Scale (used to determine whether the proposed assistive technology adaptation offers legitimate potential for compensatory effectiveness). The Summary and Recommendations Booklet is used to summarize the assessment information and to plan for subsequent progress monitoring. The scales are completed by various members of an AT evaluation team and allow for a comprehensive, ecological, multi-dimensional assessment of a person's AT needs. The complete kit includes an Examiner's Manual and 25 copies each of the Contextual Matching Inventory, Checklist of Strengths and Limitations, Checklist of Technology Experiences, Technology Characteristics Inventory, Individual-Technology Match, and Summary/Recommendation Booklets, all in a sturdy storage box.
