OT and Assistive Technology Specialist Sarah Pickford has created an iPhone/iPad solution to help her clients who have visual neglect, due to brain injury.   Sarah found that some of her clients had difficulty locating apps and scanning across the screen of an iPhone or iPad.  She has created custom wallpapers and backgrounds to help users visually organize the iphone and ipad screens.  Here are two videos that Sarah created about how she makes the wallpapers/backgrounds and how they can be used.  She has also posted the wallpapers on her Pinterest site for people who would like to use them: http://pinterest.com/sarahpickford/accessible-iphoneipad-wallpaper/
