Description of A Portable Control Device for Promoting Independent Indoor Travel by Persons with Severe Multiple Disabilities



Abstract: A portable control device linked via radio to acoustic sources was used for promoting independent travel and activity in two adolescents with severe multiple disabilities. The control device allowed the subjects to enter activity destinations with a simple, standard response, which activated acoustic sources that indicated the way to each destination. Both adolescents learned to use the device effectively and were successful in reaching the destinations and carrying out activities on their own.
