User Perspectives: Vermonters Talk About a Telecommunications Demonstration. Paper P-118
Chupack, Stephen F.; And Others
In this collection of papers, individuals with no prior experience in telecommunications describe their experiences as participants in a major demonstration of telecommunications applied to the needs of persons with developmental disabilities in Vermont. Conducted by the Alternate Media Center of New York University from summer 1979 through September 1980, the demonstration dealt with basic questions about the communication process and how a person begins to use and adopt technology to augment that process. Project participants included the Vermont Association for Retarded Citizens (VARC), the Vermont Surrogate Parent Program (VSPP), the Center for Developmental Disabilities (CDD) of the University of Vermont, United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Vermont, and the Vermont Developmental Disabilities Council. Seventeen additional publications from the project are listed. (Author/LLS)
