Assistive technology can be a powerful tool but only if it has been designed with consumer input, selected with full knowledge of what is available, how it works, how it interacts with the environment, and most importantly, selected with full consumer knowledge and cooperation. Too often the technology selected fails the consumer because it was chosen without regard to these parameters. Poorly chosen technology leads to high abandonment rates and wasted third-party-payor money. This book attempts to remedy this situation. It discusses in depth how to select appropriate technology and presents the parameters and steps that must be taken to ensure a good match of person and technology. Also included is the Cooperative Electronic Library on Disability on CD-ROM.
