The TSIS provides a vital link between old and new—the traditional concerns of occupational therapists and the increasing impact of technology in our lives and on society. Because technology usage crosses all ages, settings, functional abilities, and occupations, occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants, and students must be able to integrate technology into all aspects of functional performance.
The TSIS provides a forum for learning about technologies specific to individuals with disabilities—seating, positioning and mobility, reasonable accommodations, augmentative communications, and adaptive computer access, as well as exploring technologies for program administration and client evaluation and treatment.
The TSIS focuses on the role of the occupational therapist and occupational therapy assistant in technology service delivery and provides the latest information on interdisciplinary technology competency, specialty certification in technology applications, and training opportunities via its quarterly newsletter and the TSIS listserv.
