This webinar will present positioning strategies to optimize access, focusing on providing a stable and functional posture. Access methods include direct, switch and voice, as well as mouse and eyegaze. Targeted positional changes may be required to determine or optimize an access method for successful assistive technology use. Case studies will be used to illustrate these concepts.
