This subject introduces students to environmental adaptation and assistive technology. Students will develop practical skills in the selection and use of a range of assistive technologies. Knowledge from other subjects in the course will be applied to enable students to appreciate the interaction between the person, environment and occupation, and how this informs decision-making in this practice area. Relevant Australian Standards and legislation will be introduced and applied to inform decisions when recommending modifications to the home environment.
