Finding the right assistive technology (AT) to best accommodate a person with a disability can be challenging. To help the staff at the Seven Hills Foundation assist their participants, we developed an AT database and an accompanying search tool. This was done through a stakeholder analysis to determine how to best meet the needs of the staff and through rigorous development cycles and testing. The database and web interface we developed is fully functional and includes a search function, an add solution form, and a solution of the day feature. We recommend further development of the database, including adding more solutions and fine tuning the search functionality. We also made additional recommendations to expand the use of existing AT at Seven Hills.
