Assessing assistive technology requirements in children with written language disorders. A decision tree to guide counseling

Résumé

Children with a written language disorder are sometimes dependent upon help from others for their schoolwork. A computer can be a way to circumvent this difficulty. Various software programs and plug-in peripheral devices are available, some of which specifically target the needs of these young people. There is no consensus, however, with regard to how best to counsel parents and children with regard to these tools. Furthermore, written language disorders and existing technical supports are not always clearly understood. In many cases, healthcare and teaching professionals have only limited knowledge of the potentially specific advantages for patients with written language disorders. A child's full integration into daily activities and school life can be hampered by counseling that was inadequately tailored or by a lack of support in using this equipment. Joint consultations involving both an occupational and a speech therapist have been set up in our department to improve counseling with regard to technical supports. Using our daily practice as a basis, we have developed a decision tree that we see as a necessary tool for helping professionals make the most appropriate practical choices.
