Follow-up Observations


Sometimes computer access solutions change over time. The reasons for changes include many factors. Some of these factors are:

  • Student Incentive: Was it too difficult for the student? Was it too easy for the student?
  • Independence: How independent was the student performing the tasks?
  • Staff/Parental Involvement: Did primary caregivers continue making improvements to solution?
  • Alternative Solution: Is there something else that might to be a better solution?

Observational Questions

When observing an individual interacting with a device, look for answers to the following questions. Review the questions first before observing the individual.

  1. What new device is evaluated?
  2. Does it appear as a successful solution for the student?
  3. Why should further problem solving with this device continue?
