Paper discussing a survey conducted to determine if rehabilitation professionals continued to use the resources and strategies offered in a Web-based graduate course called Applications of Rehabilitation Technology. Evaluations of the course indicated that the course information, interaction, and activities were practical and effective for rehabilitation professionals. The survey indicated that the rehabilitation professionals had increased the frequency of their professional practices related to assistive technology (AT) in all areas, including: recommendations for AT devices; referrals for AT services; consultations with AT experts or providers; provision of AT resources to colleagues; use of a person-centered approach to assessment; and use of online resources.
