Abstract: 

Utilization of knowledge and evidence generated from AT outcomes research is critical to decision-making for selection of AT devices.  However, identification, compilation, and application of evidence continue to challenge AT practitioners across all practice domains. This workshop will showcase AT-node, a newly developed web-application that can be used to search available data on text entry performance of individuals with disabilities.  The presenters will describe the background, design, and development of AT-node and show how it can be used by practitioners, researchers, and end users.  We will discuss possibilities for expanding the database to other AT domains.
