Agency: ED
Contract: H133S110051
Award Amount: $498,470.00


This project develops a prototype of a web-based self-management application for individuals with cognitive disabilities and those who support them. The application uses a database of an individual’s life and needs to provide relevant, actionable, and accessible data to the consumer, family members, and/or support staff. Features include cognitively accessible interface, push notifications for consumers and caregivers, easy data entry for daily event tracking, and social networking capabilities. This project conducts usability testing and effectiveness evaluation of the product working directly with consumers and caregivers representing the target user group. This includes experimental field studies of impact on self-management and quality of life.
