As a basis for user needs and system design assessments in assistive technology (AT), we have developed a new conceptual framework and battery of tests and research paradigms, on a continuing improvement basis. The framework consists of three levels, to provide; overall guidance, specific models for understanding data and task analysis. Following earlier work , we report three case studies, considering attentional problems and user-specific needs, to validate our core test elements and conceptual framework. Our systematic method generated specific benefits for our users and pointed out the need for cognitive software in assistive technology.
