The starting point for using the Environment and Communication Assessment Toolkit is the ECAT Manual—a user’s guide, technical manual, and educational resource all in one easy-to-use-book!
The Manual details how limitations associated with dementia can impact communication, describes step-by-step how to complete the assessments, and includes appropriate interventions and modifications in handy tables cross-referenced to the assessments.
These interventions and modifications offer specific strategies for implementing environmental changes that tackle the communication difficulties the ECAT Toolkit allows you to pinpoint.
The Manual has other bonuses, too—such as the final section with everything you need to know about lighting (methods, types, fixtures, bulbs, suppliers, and more).
Sold separately and also included as part of the Environment and Communication Assessment Toolkit (ECAT).
