Assistive and Rehabilitative Technology Certificate
The Undergraduate Academic Certificate Program curriculum provides a foundation for assistive technology devices, services, strategies and practices and builds on the foundation in specialty courses.
The Graduate Academic Certificate Program curriculum leverages the knowledge, skills and experiences of the graduate student, and will allow the student to critically analyze assistive technology and rehabilitation technology, synthesize technology to meet the functional goals of individuals with disability and justify the need for assistive and rehabilitative technology.
All courses will be offered in undergraduate and graduate sections.
HTHRHSC 5100- Introduction to Assistive Technology
Introduction to assistive technology and rehabilitation technology for individuals with disabilities and older adults.
HTHRHSC 5200- Assistive Technology for Seating and Mobility
Introduction to seating and mobility - specifically manual wheelchairs, power wheelchairs and scooters - for individuals with disabilities and older adults.
HTHRHSC 5400- Computers, Communication and Control for Individuals with Disabilities
Examination of technology integration for individuals with disabilities, including consumer electronics, emerging technologies, information and communication technologies, and robotic assistive technologies.
HTHRHSC 5450- Assistive Technology for Sports and Recreation
Introduction to the technologies that are used in adapted sports and recreation for individuals with disabilities and older adults.
Virtual Assistive Technology Lab
Throughout the course, students can explore the virtual lab, a recreation of the Assistive Technology Center at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, in order to find “hot spots.” Released week by week, these 17 hot spots contain helpful material such as video interviews with real assistive technology clients and up-close introductions to a variety of smart assistive home technology including video doorbells and eye-controlled tablets.
The virtual lab is a valuable resource for online students, who may not have access to such a facility.
