Abstract [en]

The objectives of this study were to identify and quantify outcomes related to implementation of computer-aided assistive technologies (CAAT) for individuals with communication disabilities and to analyze CAAT costs comprising the selected devices as well as the selection process. The study was designed as a pre/post, longitudinal study. Intermediate and global measures were used as outcome measures. Costs reflecting the resource consumption for the selected devices as well as the selection process were estimated. Individuals with communication disabilities who were referred to the regional CAAT centers were asked to participate in the study. Eighty-seven individuals were recruited. The study shows that usage of CAAT involves reasonable marginal costs for the selection process and equipment (on average SEK 14,800). Usage of CAAT diminishes disability and increases skills in handling computers. However, the outcomes are not entirely positive regarding handicap, health-related quality of life, and utility.
