Brief report: Building choice opportunities within a robot‐assisted occupational program: A case study (pages 219-226)

Abstract

Choice opportunities were built within an existing robot‐assisted occupational program. The new version of the program (with choice opportunities) was then employed with a low‐functioning, multiply handicapped man who had previously been trained in the old version of the same program (the one with no choice opportunities). The results have shown that the man responded “purposefully” to choice situations and maintained highly accurate activity engagement. The importance of providing choice opportunities to people with severe and multiple handicaps and the cost and benefits of the program used in this study are discussed.
