Objectives: In disability, defined as the consequence/result of a complex relationship between the state of health of the individual, personal and environmental factors, the intervention cannot and must not be standardized, but thought in the context of family and social life. The structuring of the STAI, contributes to social integration and participation, requires a careful consideration of the specific needs of the user, the family and an assessment of the impact on activities and the environmental context. The use of a single help able to respond to the needs of the person with disabilities leads to a better bio-psychosocial integration.
The evaluation and design of the STAI, is the result of a multidisciplinary approach defined in the school environment, a meeting point for specialists in the neuropsychiatric area, school services and family. An objective is developed, based on the functioning profile of the child (ICF-CY) and on an evaluation of a functional nature specific to the different adaptive functions. The help is shared, formed by the user, the operators and the family, and then monitored.
In 12 months, through the ICF classification, improvements in temperament and personality functions, psychomotor functions, emotional functions, use of communication tools and techniques, family relationships and communication products and technologies have been observed. In addition, there has been an improvement in gross motor skills linked to the use of the aid itself.
