A cognitive disability represents a substantial limitation in mental tasks (such as planning, information processing, and understanding of social cues) that reduces a person's ability to perform desired activities. Cognitive disabilities can arise because of congenital or acquired causes. Assistive technology can reduce the affect of these disabilities and provide improved quality of life. A number of technologies are currently being explored. The success of these technologies requires understanding barriers to use of current technology, including people with cognitive disabilities in the design process, and transitioning technology from research settings into the marketplace.
