Assistive Technology

I've had an interest in assistive technology – any device or system that helps to improve the functional capacity of people with disabilities – for about twenty years and was lucky enough to be introduced to the basics by the wonderful Gerry Craddock of the Central Remedial Clinic.

I'm now lucky to be doing the excellent Enable Ireland course on AT at the moment. Here's a great video I found recently that really makes the point: assistive technology is now cheap and accessible - you just need to get an assessment of what might help you so you don't waste time or money, and don't neglect training. 92-year-old Pat uses Amazon Echo and iPad to boost her wellbeing

Contact me if you'd like to discuss simple training in technology for older people, or getting an assessment for assistive technology. I'm not qualified yet but hope to be soon!
