Sensory Information Processing

Context-aware services are of particular importance to those with cognitive disabilities and/or neurological impairments that affect communication. Persons diagnosed with aphasia, autism spectrum disorders, pervasive developmental disorders, and those with other mild intellectual disabilities are enabled by mobile devices with context-aware services that offer visual information as cues to improve their understanding of their spatial environment. In these research projects users, parents/caregivers, therapists, and teachers are actively engaged in the design of the services, data collection, analysis, and in developing feedback for redesign. It is this participatory action element that delivers tangible improvements to the development of services in timeframes that are acceptable to those who benefit most from these mobile systems.
