I'm a communication strategist by profession. The people I work with are research scientists with a federally grant funded lab focused on developing support tools for individuals with cognitive disabilities.
We're able to splinter off the research after it clears beta so it can be packaged and made available to the public through a company called Cognitopia. My job is often to translate geek to layman.
We've released a visual calendaring software called Picture Planner already and are preparing to release a video modeling tool this summer. We believe that simple self-management tools help with a sense of control over one's life, and builds self-determination opportunities that contributes directly to a quality of life.
