Why focus on these topics?

This book addresses several built-in iOS apps. Special emphasis is placed on those apps that reflect the areas with which individuals with cognitive challenges have the most difficulty on a day-to-day basis. Examples of these difficulties include:

  • Missing appointments
  • Double-booking appointments
  • Taking notes and not being able to find them when needed
  • Not remembering homework assignments
  • Not allowing enough time to get where they need to be
  • Not having relevant contact information with them (phone numbers may be stored in a cell phone; however, addresses and relevant names may not be readily available)
  • Forgetting a list of shopping items when going to the market

In fact, individuals with cognitive challenges were consulted regarding both the topics and the depth and breadth of information presented in the book. The overwhelming response was that the book covered just enough information without causing users to be overwhelmed by the amount of information or number of skills being learned.
