Publication Date: 2004
Paper discusses the Planning and Execution Assistant and Trainer (PEAT), which is designed to assist people with cognitive disabilities to complete daily living tasks more independently. The device’s interface is an electronic memory notebook with four main sections: (1) Cue Card, (2) Calendar, (3) Names, and (4) Notes. The Cue Card section is used to provide the user with cues regarding current activities, while the Calendar, Names, and Notes sections provide the user with date/time planning, names of people they commonly interact with, and miscellaneous information, respectively. The data in each of the sections can be linked together for simple cross-referencing. The device is formatted for integrated voice recording, which can be used in the Cue Card section and attached to the Names and Notes sections. Digital pictures may also be included in these sections. The authors recommend that interested parties visit http://www.brainaid.com for additional information.
