DIGITAL ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY :
A GUIDE FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
Edited by Nick Awde, David Banes & Katharine Banes
Assistive Technology is any item, piece of equipment or software system that is used to increase, maintain or improve the functional capabilities of persons with disabilities.
As the general public’s expectations for technology have risen, so have those of people with disabilities.
For someone with a disability or functional limitation, today’s technology can support increased independence at home, in the community, employment or education.
The promise of technology for people with disabilities is unlimited. Millennium Community Solutions believes that it is every person’s right to be productive and independent, and it has endeavoured to provide an easy-to-use guide for the wide range of technologies and devices – be they sensory, cognitive, or physical – to show the reader of this guide the role that Assistive Technology can play in their lives.
Having a disability no longer has to mean that things cannot be done – it means that we can find new ways to accomplish our goals. In each section you will find constant reference to devices, aids and devices that can be easily purchased in the high street or online and which can make significant difference or be a great starting point when reducing barriers in everyday living.
