dc.description.abstractThe main objective of this paper is to review the available literature to determine the extent to which assistive technology can help people with cognitive disabilities to independently participate in everyday activities at home, school, workplace, the wider community. Treatment of persons with cognitive disabilities requires time and patience of people who provide them with necessary assistance and support. However, the interpersonal dynamics of support can create problems for family members and professionals and as well for the person. Numerous studies suggest that use of modern technology has the potential to reduce the tension between the caregiver and the cared person and to increase the independence, confidence and reduce the costs of efficient care. Due to assistive technology the functioning of persons with cognitive impairments can be improved in several ways, from providing signals, sequential instructions and reminders for tasks and activities to the development of interventions that restructure the requirements of tasks so that individuals can use the remaining abilities instead of those that are damaged.en
