AbleLink's ATLAS Travel Readiness Assessments now available as a stand-alone cloud service

COLORADO SPRINGS, November 27, 2020 --

The ATLAS Travel Readiness Assessments address a key issue in giving people with intellectual disabilities the freedom to travel in their community: How to be sure whether a person is ready to go out on their own. Travel Readiness Assessments evaluate the training process and point out areas in need of improvement. Individuals progress through the assessments in a safe environment before beginning use of bus, light rail, or foot navigation in real-life settings.

Dan Davies, AbleLink Founder & President, recently recorded the first of a new series titled "12-Minute Tech Talks". This session is devoted to an overview of the ATLAS Travel Readiness Assessments. You can view the session on demand at

Five separate surveys are included in the Travel Readiness Assessments. Each survey has multiple questions and response options in AbleLink’s trademark picture-and-audio interface. Instead of an interview conducted by a staff member, people in travel training can take the surveys on their own.

Survey topics include:

  • Transportation Skills and Experience
  • Community Social Skills
  • Light Rail Skills and Experience
  • Street Crossing Skills
  • Vehicle Identification Skills
