Edited by Nick Awde, David Banes & Katharine Banes

A new full colour guide to the digital possibilities of today’s assistive technology – all the gadgets, equipment, apps and software systems that are used to increase, maintain or improve the functional capabilities of people with disabilities. Includes a detailed introduction to choosing and using assistive technology.

For someone with a disability or functional limitation, today’s technology can support increased independence at home, in the community, employment or education. Millennium Community Solutions believes that it is every person’s right to be productive and independent, and it has produced this easy-to-use guide for a wide range of  technologies and devices – be they for sensory, cognitive, or physical needs.

Having a disability no longer means that things cannot be done. Rather, 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 on the high street or online and which can make significant difference to everyday living or be a great starting point when reducing barriers.
