We believe that all people should be able to participate in their community, make their own choices, and connect with others. Technology has the ability to create opportunities and open doors for individuals with disabilities. We aim to explore best practices for connecting individuals to technology that enables them to communicate, control their environments, make their own choices, and gain greater independence in their lives.
Do you think assistive technology could support you but you are not sure where to start? It might seem like a good idea to purchase the latest and greatest technology, but in order to be successful you have to think through the process.
What are your interests and goals? Where will you use it? Who can support you? What training is needed for you and your support team?
This guide takes you through the process of using Person-Centered tools to help you plan and prepare for incorporating technology into your daily life with the right supports. The process is broken down into four phases. Each tool is explained using examples of real individuals with blank templates for you to try out the tool. The best way to use this guide is to complete each tool and assessment in order.
