Assistive technology (AT) helps individuals with disabilities participate fully in their educational, recreational, and vocational pursuits. This book traces the evolution of legislation that has affected AT and shows how consumers can take advantage of policy changes that have improved service delivery. Chapters offer a complete discussion of low and high technology, providing techniques that are applicable across environments, domains, and age groups. Occupational therapists, rehabilitation personnel, service providers, and AT users can turn to this resource for information on policy, consumer involvement, assessment, funding, training, and incorporating AT into everyday life.
