The Guidelines are structured in three parts. Part I gives an introduction to the theoretical foundation of the work of the network and of the guidelines in the present booklet. Part II is an analysis of textbooks and introductions to assessment in general, that aim at teasing out general guidelines that need specific CDB focus. This part ends up in a set of recommendations for assessment of cognition in relation to CDB. Part III is a series of examples from our own work that present different attempts at applying the presented guidelines and theoretical foundation, in combination with more specific assessment targets and procedures.
All authors are professionals within the deafblind-field working practically in different disciplines or with research.
