Cognitive impairments are considered disturbances in brain functions, such as memory loss, problems with orientation, distractibility, perception problems, and difficulty in thinking logically. Cognitive impairment is a syndrome, not a diagnosis. There are many conditions that can cause cognitive impairments, including: multiple sclerosis, dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), stroke, and traumatic brain injury (TBI). For CAP's purposes, this does not refer to developmental disabilities or mental retardation, nor does it include cognitive impairments associated with old age. Below are a number of assistive technologies that CAP has received a high number of requests for, therefore resulting in CAP's ability to provide them to our customers as appropriate accommodation solutions for people with this disability.
